A Vow


Though I may not sing you balmy blues
As melodiously
As Lionel Richie
But sonorously
Will I sing you beautiful ballads
Better than a nightingale
Especially at your wakeful nights
To massage your frayed nerves
And serenade you
Lulling you to sleep soundly
And watching over you
All through the night
Not like a slovenly squire
But as a chivalrous knight

Though I may not write you eulogies
As eruditely as William Shakespeare
But I will write you sincere
And enduring encomiums
Highlighting your enthralling elegance
And your impeccable peculiar attributes
That make you stand out in every crowd
Head and shoulder taller
Than your contemporaries
Causing you to shine brighter
Than the sun
The moon
And the stars
In a combined brilliant show
So the world can behold your beauty
And bow
Praising your maker
The greatest potter

Though I may not be as rich as King Solomon
To shower you with precious gifts
As he gave to the Queen of Sheba
But I will give you an invaluable
And outstanding token ever made
My huge humble heart
Your peaceful posh home
Exclusively furnished to your taste

Though I may not build you an earthly palace
As magnificent as Buckingham
But I will guide you carefully
To a mansion unsurpassed in grandeur
Which is your heavenly home
Located next to mine
Where we shall forever live next to each other
In continued reverence of our Creator.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
