~ Pater's Crater's ~


O lover's lune; how many pregnant gazes upon thee hath giv'n birth to a touch of vapours begat from virgin fancies? And what fountains through the wonder-wounded night have ancient milk from stone udders poured, abreast the savage droughts of yearning hearts? What witness hast ye borne when nigh was the consort's hand, pledging unmeasured affection to riddles of the Orient leaping from her almond eyne, which dowsed silver'd shadow from thy moontide eve?; when trembling lips sealed suitor's ardour with molten sparks of married kiss?


How ye play amongst shards of stolen epoch which sprinkle the dignified, darksome vault, resembling spoils of day, to punctuate thy mist-strewn dusk of frosted ivory with their coruscating shower, pillaging adult vigour and taming infant eyelids with your distant, drowsy village.


Thee govern redolent daughters of Albion, flouncing thro' louvred, boudoir chambers of lonesome plaudit, unbeknowingly conspiring, as they raise a looking-glass in aromatic rooms, to wade in a crystal puddle of sybaritic counterfeit whilst primping and preening to the tune of time's harassment of splendrous youth, transfixed by this bedimmed, altar of delusion that seekest divorce from remnants of coquettish beauty with evinced imitations of madame's sarcoid lines which no Bard darest recite.


And when thy palladium watch of ebon tour is complete, ye glance through cosmic veils o'er beds of flossed cloud that sugar prairies of earless maize and swinging einkorn, which undulate via ghostly chinook 'neath timorous beams of sun bless'd realms, to occlude thine archaic inspection, fading afore thy brother sol's enchantment, who should once more, becometh the dazzling visage of future's wont.

      As always, Romeo, so lovely and romantic. I sort of float off to a realm of beauty and peace when I read your poems that go beyond to deepest adoration. Thank you for this moment of splendor.

      RQ,

      Even though it has been many a moon since I had babies to nurse, your poetic revery about had me lactating. Not sure that was an appropriate comment; but, hopefully you receive as it was intended: Complimentary.

      I felt as if you weaved a tale that just traveled effortlessly bringing the reader to and thro so many worlds a washed in the romance of revelry.

      Romeo, nicely done Sir and voted accordingly.

      Smiles,

      Kim

      Dearest Romeos,

      I am so glad I am reading this right before I turn in for the evening. Exquisitely written in only Romeos style ...like no other! You have one creative mind and a natural gift to express such brilliance through your poetry.

      I will second Phyllis and Kim's wonderful comments to you.

      May beautify fill your life as you fill ours through your words!

      We do not express enough appreciation for the moon and its influence on us. The last section presenting it as a prelude to the sun is matchless. Thanks for these unique, beautiful reflections.

      Lol! Kim; your imaginative commentary is a joy and I never take things the wrong way when you alight with your parcel of encouragement.

      Thank you and glad that you enjoyed this succinct excursion of sublunary persuasion.

      Good evening Faith;

      It's always a pleasure to provide something which may temporarily take one away from the mundane and indeed, may beauty also fill your life as you do ours.

      Thank you for such special words and hope that you and your family are doing just fine and Monday hasn't been too much of a drag so far.

      With Warm Regards;

      R.Q.

      You are so right MsDora; it governs so much of life; the time, tides, romance and the habits of animals that hunt, to name just a few.

      I enjoyed reading your kindness Hub and do hope that you and your mum are well today and send my best to both of you.

      Kindest Regards;

      R.Q.

      Love this and the way it brings us round to dawn, giving way to the sun. Such mysteries are there with the night, especially a full moon!

      Breath-taking!

      Hope all's well with you up there. Can't be colder than here!

      It's going to sound like I'm rubbing it in Ann but it's been really muggy over the last couple of days, though I can't see it lasting until the weekend.

      Thanks a million for stopping by with becoming report and trust that you and your nearest and dearest are well down there, regardless of the fickle elements.

      All the best;

      Hi R.Q. Your wonderful romantic words take one on a journey to another time and place. I see that your poetry is particularly appealing to the feminine gender by all the other comments here and I do understand why, but I can appreciate a fine artist and you are one of the best at this craft..I applaud you. Well done.

      G'day John;

      Thanks a million for stopping by and leaving such uplifting words here.

      I enjoyed all three of your Aussie slang, strine and colloq. Hub articles you collated recently and, for what it's worth, shared them on Pinterest.

      We used to receive ' Home & Away ' and ' Neighbours ' over here on T.V. which used to be on after school which my sis and I used to watch - always loved the carefree attitude of the Aussies and the lifestyle looks so appealing.

      Paul Hogan, Kylie Minogue, Guy Pearce, and the late Steve Irwin went down a storm over here as well as movies like Walkabout, Mad Max and Crocodile Dundee.

      All the best and I'll crack open a cold one for you and your continuing success.

      R.Q.

      Thanks R.Q. Appreciate the sharing and pinning. "Walkabout" is still one of my favourite movies of all time (shows my age). I used to have a crush on Jenny Agutter :) after watching it.
