~ Esmeralda ~

Updated on May 9, 2015


'Neath chartreuse realms of fostered trees,

I felt commotion in the breeze;

An angel strolled, all wrapped in skin,

Who made the thunder roll within.


Pearled graceful neck 'bove slender ankle,

Sheened cocoa eyne o'er noonlit mantle;

Wert saunt'ring thro' a primrose fair,

With cups of butter in her hair.


Hewn silkened calf in promenade,

'Twere chauffered by her smitten bard;

Wisped gauzen dress, abandon taught

His peaked imagination, caught.


Dewed tinctured lips of noble Greek,

Sought crimson parchment's claret cheek;

I blinked upon my precious one,

Blinked once again; thence she was gone.

      Mysterious and beautiful. Shame it all goes when we blink!

      Wonderful poetry as always, R.Q.

      Enjoying rain and wind in France, though we saw the sun a few times a while ago!

      I think I must learn more beautiful words for my poetry. I've just started writing poetry, but I'm enjoying the process of it. Even learning my own style is interesting. This one is beautiful. I love the verses; Wert saunt'ring thro' a primrose fair; With cups of butter in her hair. Just gorgeous!!

      Romeos, I was taken into the mood from the first verse and enjoyed it all the way. Couldn't help the blink, could we? Oh, well! Great while it lasted even it it were not real.
