Love's Tongue


Fond of your beauty I deem it wise
To stir your emotions so may rise
And by making little compromise
You may turn to me your charming eyes

Fleshy tongue can not say
What heart reveals right away
Should mighty love leads the way
Its guidance will certainly pay

Hiding feelings to be serene
Hypocricy it may be seen
Utter what you really mean
On what you are certainly keen

Never be ashamed of what you are
No one is better than you so far
Foolish shyness everything may mar
Don't be with your feelings at war
Now, with everybody you'r on par

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hello everybody
This is the very first time I write a poem in English.I am not a native English speaker.I write poems in Farsi(Persian) .I would like to learn about the meter and Rhyme (prosody) in English poems, about the structure and the frame.The meter and rhyme in Persian poems are somehow similar to that of English clasical Rhymed poems, with the exepion that English meter is Accentual, based on stressing on syllables, while the Persian meter is Quantitative, based on longtitude of syllables. I think through a continuing practise and writing poems in whatever possible way I can pull through. What do you think? Any guiding comments from fellow members will be appreciated. Thank you all.
