~~~ Lioness of Lea ~~~
V1/ In brazen times, sol jived his bloom,
Thence spun her on eternal loom;
Extending rays in fires of noon,
Whenst west met easts’ relentless June.
V2/ Scintilla of May’s remorseless sears,
Evaporated, moonlit tears;
Whose sibyline spell, broke chants of wizards,
To parch away thy arcane blizzards.
V3/ Summer dress, swanked elven sandals;
Mane, shone like a million candles;
Mellow tones devoid of vice,
Thy gait, demure, in mincing slice.
V4/ A song of love; a virtual touch;
A gentle giggle, that meant so much.
An arching brow o'er sparkling tooth,
Sweet tender lips of vibrant youth.
V5/ A melting gaze to make thee mine,
A debtor, to your dreamy eyne;
A loving beam, so bright and fresh,
To charge your fool with happiness.
V6/ Your curtained face set hearts apace,
Exquisite arms of sweet embrace.
The smiles you laughed; the words you said,
Now memories, inside my head.
V7/ Through amaurotic, salient pause,
Of you not mine, and I, not yours;
So near, my dear, but miles apart,
In ocean tides, but ne’er in heart.
V8/ Oh life! Where is my songbird flower,
My love, ensconced inside her bower?
E’en mews which crooned fleet swoons of her,
Skedaddled, rimed birch, snowbrothed, ether.
V9/ Thou’s eyne of glede whelmed guiled offence;
To reave from thee unmarshalled sense,
So please return, unto thee, lest,
Thou’est perish inside thine empty nest.
