~ Eleanor / A Thousand Leagues ~

Updated on September 30, 2015

~ A Thousand Leagues (from her heart) ~


A dram from thine lips makes the whole world taste sweet,

Whence old soul from new quips flow fine drink and her meat;

Belle's life be a mast, avast love be my sail,

Nowst awaiting warm lungs of our sky to exhale.


Ye ruleth thro' seat of our secret affection,

Robed in womanly charms bathed in lovers' reflection;

Thee wait, though hath ne'er seen tenderest buds move,

Erstwhile mouths spaketh love, what of truth shall they prove?


My heart is a lion; your velvet, a sheep;

Whose golden paws brace thee when lain down to sleep.

Relinquish thouest love, for thy storge, giants fell,

'Mongst our life, spirits wrest, binding satyrs in hell.


We stalleth trothplight garnering wealth for this quest,

To prepare for a time we could grant bairn our best;

Our strength yields us fruit for we verily seek good,

So canst birth newborn son cleansed by Sire's royal blood.



THE END

~~~ Eleanor ~~~

An Original, Lyrical Poem.



Swart nights of forties Paris tattoo d'amour within her eyes,


Cerulean breaths 'pon June respire, conceding swoons in withered sighs.


Breeze ushers thee unto the mystic parlour of thy thoughts,


Beneath those kissing curls and retro whorls of grandeur, splendour-wrought.


Apprized esprit in reverie surmount veiled years of which thouest ponder,


Aye, of brigantines and queens suffused in wild accents of yonder. ©

      A very Blessed and Happy New Year to you, Romeo.

      Thank you for your beauty in poetry to start the year nicely. These are lovely poems. Voted Up, across and H+

      I love romantic poems, which you do so well, yet chose potpourri so as not to miss out on any of your creative endeavors.

      It is good to read you again - I have missed your beautiful poetry. Hope all is well with you.

      Romeos, I voted for a potpourri. No matter the theme of your poetry, your lines always offer pleasant surprises in your language and your style. Keep bringing on beautiful lines like, "Belle's life be a mast, avast love be my sail." Beautiful creations.

      Happy New Year! Prosperity, Productivity and God's Favor!

      I love "Eleanor" what a majestic and incredible poem. Have you been influenced by Shelley? Jamie

      Romeos Quill 2 years ago from Lincolnshire, England

      Hi there Jamie;

      I hope you and your family are enjoying a pleasant week so far.

      Did you mean the radicals Mary Wollstonecraft or Percy Bysshe Shelley? No matter, for the simple answer is 'no', but have checked out some of Mr. Shelley's back catalogue seeing as you have mentioned the name.

      ' Ozymandias ' and ' To a Skylark ' are pretty good poems; the structure of the latter may appeal to you who appreciates form.

      The things which influence, as I'm sure it is true for many writers and poets are the unpremeditated song of the unfolding day, personal faith, life experience and the gentle hammer of a woman's heartbeat striking the anvil of man's imagination, whose ensuing scintillations enkindle the words which occasionally reverberate where time has come undone.

      Thanks for coming by for a read and sending best regards for an exciting weekend.

      R.Q.
