V1/ Discerned no wings, that dusk she came,

To stretch soothed wits, and ease thy pain;

Surmised elan glitzed emerald eyes,

Her vim, nay cached, veneered disguise.


V2/ Perceived suggestions, borne by love,

Manoeuvred, tranquil as the dove,

Which modulated genial need,

Assuaged, like quenching honey mead.


V3/ Confabulating, ‘pon thy bed,

Allaying contusion, in my head;

Thence heeded; “ Angel of Renown,

Pray, counting filament aloft thy crown,

Delight with lambent lineaments bright,

Succour thee with thine azimuth flight.”


V4/ “ Ye art thy luau, yea taste thine lips,

Thou’ll brace twain pennae, in mortal grips;

If I’m to die, Queen of the South

Free my last breath, into your mouth....



THE END

* A Brief Explanation of ' Corona ' *


This short, lyrical poetic verse is about an anonymous man, who has suffered a recent major trauma, and as he's laying on his bed, a mysterious woman, walks into his room, whilst attempting to conceal her true identity - she is a human Angel with hidden wings, trying to pass herself off as a stranger from outside, but the man is quite astute, and an expert in love and thus can tell by her unusually emanating eyes, and the way that her smooth voice is constantly speaking from the roots of agape love, that she has been sent to him to comfort at a time of great distress, and has enumerated even the number of hairs on his head, thus further disclosing her true nature, As he systematically unravels her secrets, she can no longer conceal her true identity, so reveals her pinioned feathers, but must return back to where she came from soon, but the man wants to go with her, but she cannot take him unless he's dead. He loves her, this much he knows so quickly from experience, then mysteriously, his heart stops, embraces her wings with his mortality, and, in his final throes,asks that, as he kisses her, his last breath on earth be breathed into her mouth....

      Hi Laurie,

      Thank you for dropping by. Most of the words should be available in the OED, or Webster's dictionary; a few are archaic, and a little more difficult to fathom. You are very kind and encouraging Laurie, for which I'm always grateful to you.

      With Warm Regards and more blessings for you,

      Hi Laurie!

      That's awfully considerate of you to alight a second time to mention the photograph - the snapper tried to envisage what a rel-life Angel would realistically look like, and didn't mind me using it as long as I gave him a mention.

      Thanks again :)

      Phenomenal and brilliant poem as always, dearest Romeos! Thank you for the further detail included below. Reading your extensive vocabulary always leaves me in awe. Stunning imagery too and I am glad the anonymous man shared of his trauma and of the earthly angel who was sent to him speaking agape love into his heart. Divine love is just that, divine indeed. When we know of one who is suffering in any manner, especially traumatic, we must be mindful to do as this woman did and speak comforting words of pure truth into that one's heart and in doing so, then others may know of such agape love.

      Up and more and sharing.

      Hugs and love to your from southern USA this beautiful Sunday,

      Faith Reaper

      The OED sends greetings from afar,

      and we the ben-e-fi-cia-ries are,

      for wist ye this coroun hath shon so bryghte

      that with the glem aston-ed was the syghte.

      [and thank you Mr. Chaucer for your helpe]

      A beautiful face . . . no doubt has its place

      in healing with grace, . . . but can it replace

      the human embrace . . . of one who is real,

      who knows your ordeal . . . and feels what you feel?

      Now take it easy, folks: R. Q. can take some jokes

      and gentle pokes from friendly folks.

      His mentoring from England has much merit

      de-lin-eat-ing English we inherit,

      engraving for us new romantic pictures,

      enhancing us for all our new adventures,

      ennobling us to bravely face our futures.

      Best wishes to you, R.Q., and to you all,

      Hi Jackie!

      Offence? No way. I recognize that some humour can be lost in translation within the limiting means of computer communication, so please, think nothing of the kind. I posted a brief explanation of the poem in order to clear up any potential misunderstandings of what it meant, and decided to remove the shorter comment to you in order to give a more extensive overview.

      Now corruption of innocence or wilful indifference, perhaps, but never a seed of that in you dear Jackie.

      Lol! I've seen commentary which would make a navvies cheeks blush redder than an angry Northern Cardinal.

      Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

      That's really kind of you to say, and thankfully accept your wonderful thoughts and remarks.

      To answer you inquisition, I did write a short story quite a while back now; I shall put the first chapter in the HP spotlight, if you want to have a look-see.

      Take care, and shall read those chapters of your story yet unread.

      Your words are so fine and very true, and is another welcoming opportunity of spreading that deepest of all the loves. Thank you for such generosity in commenting and sharing today, hoping that everything continues to go well for you and your family, and send those Hugs and love right back to you, with some more thrown in for good measure :)

      Good evening, Max Havlick( B.A., M.A., Ph.D ) - hope I didn't add, nor miss anything out

      You have listed quite a fascinating and impressive biography on your HP cover page, and I'm pleased to make your new acquaintance in this HubPage town of wonder.

      I liked your verse and the nod to Geoffrey Chaucer; shall have to read some of his work when time permits.

      Thank you for your encouragement and your uplifting wishes, and your verse requires an answer, to which I'll furnish one here.

      Hmmm... Could the man in ' Corona ' feel better by embracing the rib which pierced the heart of the afflicted? Could he afford to trust nought, but a citizen of His Third Abode, to freely swim in the deep, flowing crystal waters, gesticulating from his most personal well-spring, of life-breathing issue?

      If trust donned permanent flesh, then I for one, would bend upon one knee to humbly ask this miracle for her loving hand in the blissful union of betrothal, to oversee the ever-closer contractions of ' US ', aiding its new birth into ' TrUSt '.

      Thank you for flying over for a read, and send peace and goodwill to you over the choppy waters of His Atlantic.

      Yours Sincerely,

      R.Q.

      Romeos, you are a POET among poets. Thank you for sharing this extraordinary talent here on HP. Both my heart and mind get a healthy workout on reading your work.

    • Max Havlick profile image

      Max Havlick 3 years ago from Villa Park, Illinois

      Thanks, R.Q., for your generous response.

      All three of my Ph.D. programs failed to produce a degree. The bad news, no salary, no pension, no prestigious college credential, etc. The good news, as independent scholar, I have more of that terrifying thing called freedom, and I get to talk to adults, not children, and say what I honestly think and want to say.

      My Chaucer words came from "The Legend of Good Women," Text G, Prologue, lines 163-64, in "The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer," 2nd ed. (Cambridge, Mass.: Riverside Press, 1961), page 487. Hard going, but well worth the effort as long as you don't get lost inside it.

      Finally, if Trust ever should don human flesh, please let me know, and I will also "bend my knee," not "for her loving hand in the blissful union of betrothal," but in hopeful prayer she soon finds some other recipient of her female perfection, bec. as is well documented, thus one thing you can safely trust, all such union is notoriously far from blissful (except in cheap novels, soap operas, and some movies).

      But if that's your cup of tea, R.Q., go for it! I'll be honored to accept the invitation to your wedding and reception -- if you trust me to kiss the bride.

      Best wishes continuing, your work is outstanding.

      Max

      Thank you so much for such wonderful appraisal of the writing and it is always a pleasure to try and provide something which at least one person may enjoy - you're very welcome, and additionally glad it gets those little grey cells and red corpuscles a ' healthy workout ', as you say, so thank you.

      Good Morning Max Havlick,

      Firstly, to have embarked upon three intense pursuits as you have is still very impressive, and as you allude to, gives enormous latitude for independent work - maybe the adults need you more than children do.

      Thank you for the pointer to G. Chaucer and the extra detail of the quote you used - it has quite an intriguing title lol!

      Well, unfortunately it seems you're right about most unions being far from blissful, especially in this present age; if every man and woman plowed the same field, it would surely lead closer towards that seemingly unobtainable permanent bliss, which is the stuff of those mediums you have relayed.

      Marriage is still a wonderful thing , I believe, although I also think that those who remain unmarried can do even better, as mentioned by the Apostle Paul ( the Roman cognomen of ' Saul ' from Tarsus, if you're Jewish ).

      Trust another man to kiss the bride? lol!

      Thanks again for your kind considerations, and have a healthy, wealthy and fulfilling week ahead.

      Kind Regards,

      R.Q.

      Hi...R Q

      Its simply awesome....you words are so much exclusively expressed and its a poetic journey of magnificent metaphor...the man in question is suffering sure but then behind this trauma a rare understanding is also there. The angel to kiss the last breathe from the man with the winged dream of mortality as the end seems to be start of much peace many a times.

      And there you are...

      '....Free my last breath, into your mouth....'

      Its nice to be free even to die..its nice to be free even to kiss

      freedom to die in the arms of the angel with the mysterious eyes....

      its real divine to be in love...and never the less precious to be free to die....The image is also very much meaningful like those of your creative excellence here. ....!

      Its nice to see, friend that you are coming out bit by bit....and enjoy the trip ...even in pain we feel inside the worth of the tears....never the less..free them to make new smiles inside your golden heart:-)

      Votes way up and shared as well....

      take care...!!

      Dear Deergha,

      You certainly are in possession of a rare and sensitive heart, crowned with empathy. I don't understand why a woman would want to withdraw from the world almost completely when she has everything offered to her - the best that she has, or ever likely to have in the future. Lack of communication is a death, and the final nail in the coffin; that death is freeing, inasmuch as it allows both parties to pursue their own separate futures - though I thought they would be linked. If it was another man, or me with another woman, that would make it simpler, but alas, this is not the truth. I don't understand it, and can only put it down to sociopathic behaviour, in which case, it is best for me to run a hundred miles in the opposite direction.

      No doubt in her future, some Freudian couch session might reveal that it is linked to, or akin to bad potty training when she was five years' old, or something equally ridiculous, but this is life....this is now, and it has to go forward or we both stagnate. So she locks herself in her own bubble and pretends that everyone else is dead - this is going to end badly for her, I can feel it.

      Anyway, thanks a million Deergha for being an absolute peach - you're such a decent woman who deserves the best which life has to offer.

      Thank you, and enjoy a lovely evening.

      Romeos, Blessings dear brother. I have missed reading your beautiful works of art. I really enjoyed this piece of work. As always I sit on the edge of my seat in anticipation. Each word flows into the other in magical unison. You really do have a wonderful gift my friend. I like the finishing paragraph. It put me in deeper touch with the mans feelings and reminds me of how much God loves us. He sends His holy angels for comfort. The man has feelings I think we can all relate too. A lost love, a hurting heart, a broken dream, a yearning for more. Thank you so much for writing 'Corona'. Your pictures are always stunning Mr. Romeos Quill. You are priceless my dear friend and bro. I really hope to be back soon and read more. No matter, I will be back.

      I have taken some time away from the computer. I had allot of family around me for a couple of months. Coming and going. It has been a treasure to behold and a precious time. In fact I feel like the most blessed woman in the world. I have the three most amazing and precious daughters, but for the grace of God! I am so touched and honored by their love and presence. It is Gods work and He is so amazing. He loves us so much Romeos Quill I am in awe each day at His marvelous wonders and tender love. He loves to surprise His kids and that He has done with me the last several weeks. He has blessed me in eternal gifts that no one can ever take and rust and moth will not destroy. He has blessed my finances in ways that I could have not dreamed up. I have tears of joy now because God so wants to bless each one of us. Many do not receive and tragic many do not want to know of Him. Well that is another story, Amen.

      In my time away I pursued God. It is like I went from faith to faith and glory to glory. Christ revealed to me more of His splendor and glory. I am not sure how to put into words but when time the Holy Spirit will breathe them through me.

      My Zoey is now 7 months. She is full of zest and vigor. She brings us allot of joy along with some puppy pain, as well. I now need to put a sweater on her to go out because it is cool and all 6 lbs. of her shivers. She does not like clothes. Unlike her owner, who loves clothes. JK, not. Anyway she ages me quickly but keeps me young and in shape. God knew what He was doing when He so blessed me with her. She is a perfect fit. She so loves kids. It is a very good thing because the grandsons and her play chase all over the place. They love it. All boys running, jumping, sliding, skidding being batmans, ninja turtles or power rangers. The neighbor kids come over by handfuls each day to take her out walking. I have a feeling they run but that is all OK by me. Wear out the bundle of energy she is.

      Well now that I wrote a letter to you I will sign off. I do pray Romeos that you my brother are blessed in all your comings and goings. I pray the favor of God follow you each and every day and be on you keeping you safe and out of harms way. I just love ya Romeos. I am so grateful faith reaper shared you at the hubs. You are loved my dear brother. Hugs Galore. Skye.

      Dear Skye,

      To say you've been missed would be an understatement, but life outside of these pages is so much more important, though HP seems to be like the cream on life's pudding sometimes.

      Firstly, thank you for such warmth and encouraging commentary you have blessed me with here this eve, and it certainly is a blessing to receive such a detailed and chunky message from such a woman who has an extremely beautiful heart whose magnitude is blinding - you are so special and loved a great deal dear sis.

      I'm so genuinely pleased for you and your family that the last few weeks have been going so well and full of life's surprising blessings - couldn't happen to a more deserving person. It's also so good to hear that your relationship in Faith and Truth has been going from strength to strength, and the maturity of aforesaid qualities have been instrumental in building you up and strengthening that which you already possess, to bring you, and those within your radar, more joy and beneficial character development.

      So your Zoe is now seven months? Wow, how it flies, though because of her physical stature, she'll always be a baby to you,still, I guess; the fact that she's family friendly is such a bonus as well, and that the kids get a real buzz out of playing with her.

      Thank you Skye, for writing your pretty letter, and I really appreciate your blessings, for they mean a great deal to me. Additionally, I certainly trust that all things may continue to go well with you and that God blesses you even more, with a full measure, pouring over, and indeed, Faith sharing at the Hubs has been nothing but a continual source of joy for many, though the wonderful darling isn't feeling very well at the present time, so we can only pray that she feels better very soon. I love you Skye, and again, thank you for your heart-touching generosity, and for sharing.

      With Kindest Regards,

      R.Q.

That is why I made a choice to turn off computer all together. Once I hit the hub button and that is a given I get distracted from most things. Go figure. JK.

      Chat soon dear brother. Be well. Love, Skye.
