In sheer beauty my mistress’ eyes exceeds the sun (in answer to William Shakespeare)


In sheer beauty my mistress’ eyes exceeds the sun,
her lips is more pretty than it’s rising,
her breasts are tender and pure, each one
with a pink fragility, rose tipped, quite amazing
and no wires or even wheat or corn is apt to the hue
of her fair hair, or as tender as its strings
and her breath, her odour outshines that of her retinue
and in its freshness reminding me of new awakenings
and some coy innocence is in the blush on her cheeks
when alluring she is passionate and ready for my delight
and almost hungrily, reaches seeks
for my company, my body as a lily of the night:
spreading her petals, unfolding, drawing me into her embrace
in sheer magic, using almost divine grace.

[Reference: Sonnet 130 My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun by William Shakespeare.]

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
