My England; my London
Her artistic beauty; The Palace of Her Majesty,
Attests to her nobility and character.
The quintessence of her red, white and blue,
Manifests the richness of her diversity and culture.
Her Parliament, not far from where Churchill stood,
Stirring her dauntless children on to greatness;
Stands as her profundity-Heart, offering its benevolence
To its verdant green and distant lands.
Her capacity is huge, covering her length and breath,
Her Spirit, to the music of sixty-five million souls.
With great aplomb, stateliness and grandeur,
She absorbs the rigors of her duties and daily commute.
Cascading Light unto her sports, she’s boisterous,
Yet serene as her river, flowing unobtrusively,
With the gracefulness of the swan.
Gone is her Empire; yet she retains passionately her pride,
Singing the dauntless values, of the unsung heroes which gave her life.
My London is trendy, versatile … accommodating,
Offering her zest; her gratitude to the sacred steeples,
The chimes of Big Ben, that lies within her soul.
My England is vast, opening her Heart to the world;
Teaching the ever-transcending song, of progress.

The Rapturous Ecstasy of Thy Love
You kiss the sweetness of my longing,
And even in the uncomely hours of the night,
Your shine excels the resplendence of shooting stars.
The breath of Thy lips whispers to my cheeks,
As the Heart glows in Silence.
One glance at Your hazel-blue gaze,
And my core flutters, like a butterfly in flight.
I remember Your previous wooing, but I was young
And impetuous, unable then to appreciate Thy elegance;
The naked intimacy and grandeur of Thy allure.
I knew naught of the beauty of sunset; how to savour the rapturous
Ecstasy of Thy Love. Today, I have blossomed fully, like a flower,
Unfurling its petals in the heart of spring; I smile in agony, striving
To withstand Love’s million bow-strings, delivering sugar to my soul.
