~~~ Whispering Cusps ~~~

Updated on December 13, 2013

~ Whispering Cusps ... ~



Taketh eyne, that shine so true,

Oak lamps, which light your path, I hew;

Brooch hands of suave, smooth fingered heart,

To feel my warmth, wherest courting starts.


Yea, brace stout guns, which fire for you,

These arms, wrapped round my honey blue,

Thenst part thine lips, which breathe my name,

In soft delight, ‘pon Tarzan, Jane.


Taketh dreams your lover gives,

True myth, where thous sweet beauty lives,

Lo, steal this night, my only heart,

Prithee, bond thy word we’ll never part.

      Wooo ...now dear Romeos, those stout guns coupled with Tarzan and Jane lines just do not get any better than that ... I must say : ) Sounds like you are off to a great weekend already and hope the rest is just as exhilerating! I would not cool those jets one bit if I were you, Faith Reaper ...

      Morning RQ.

      Hey, have you been on a "Shakespeare" trip of late.

      Have you had a holiday down in Stratford-upon-Avon or may been to the Theater.

      Great article

      Very beautiful Romeos. Though this is french (you might say) to us southern ladies, we do remember our literature and first sight of the only romance allowed us in school. You take us back.

      Lol! Hi Ghaelach,

      Never set foot in a theatre in my life ( too ' high brow ' for a working-class lad like me ), either as audience or player, and never holidayed in Bard territory neither - thanks for your encouraging input on the verse.

      Best Wishes,

      Thank you dear Jackie for your equally beautiful comments and I trust that nostalgic foray into those early school days was a pleasant one for you.

      Dear CrisSp,

      To be even uttered in the same sentence as one of the masters of human nature in writing is probably one of the greatest compliments a poet can receive. I'll try to finish completing this return comment whilst pretending not to be bowled over. lol!

      All glory to God. Thanks a million, and take care;

      Dear Romeos,

      LOL ... I love it! I remember that call so well from childhood, Johnny Weismuller Tarzan Call ... I really MUST get that one when a particular someone calls hehehe It sure beats yodeling by a long shot : )

      He sure did get around ... the jungle : ) ... on those vines!

      Sorry, just caught your comment back, been out all day Christmas shopping ... whew, my little sweethearts sure must have been good this year!

      Hope you are having a divine weekend,

      Faith Reaper

      Well dear Faith, I'm sure that those precious little bundles of simple joy deserve everything they get this merry season, and you're such a trooper doing all of that running about for them, but will sure be worth it I reckon, for you just to see their little faces light up like a flash bulb.

      Olympic Gold medalist Johnny sure had a pair of lungs on him. You won't forget who called you with that one in a hurry :)

      Weekend is just fine dear Faith, and sincerely hope you find some time for yourself to relax and enjoy its remainder.

      With Kind Regards,

      R.Q.

    • Faith Reaper profile image

      Faith Reaper 3 years ago from southern USA

      Yes, dear Romeos, Christmas just seems more like Christmas when there are little ones around, at least to me ... for they do bring much joy and light into the world.

      Johnny, sure did have a pair of lungs on him no doubt! Hahaha no way to forget that one who calls ... I love it!

      I am taking time to relax ... we all need that time. So, glad your weekend is fine. Wonder what the female version of Tarzan's call would be? : )

      Hugs,

      Faith Reaper

      Faith....I think Jane's call might be a notably, emphatic, punishing silence as a non-existent return call to hubby for not buying her the Christmas present she wanted lol! :)

      R.Q.

    • Faith Reaper profile image

      Faith Reaper 3 years ago from southern USA

      LOL, yes, I forgot Jane did have her own call : )

      That would be good reason for a non-existent return call! hehehe

      Hugs,

      Faith Reaper

      Very nice, as usual. I knew Tarzan was a romantic at heart. The picture of the lady would be just right if she were wearing an animal skin, but then the animal rights guys would be all over your poem.
