Maiden at Heart


Your eyes do compare to stars
And the face a lily pure and bright
But it’s the heart sweet to the core
And your blithe spirits in flight
To the visions of glee and delight

Your svelte frame bears a grace
And gait that flows like rhymes
Of vileness of the past it carries no trace
Voice rings like distant chimes
Or a lark that chirps in the high skies

But it’s the spirit unmarred and not bent
By woes and worries that once
Shadowed your life and brought you discontent
You are a fresh hope, alive and sentient
A smiling visage with pleasant vibe


You carry your apparel nicely with no art
Walks in simplicity, a maiden at heart!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I've made the changes in choice of words as suggested by Shahzia Batool. I was thinking about a lady in my imagination and in fact all apparent beauty is the metaphor of beauty at heart.

    Beautiful lines, your choice of words is always apt and the style is expressive...a humble suggestion, if you replace the first word Thy with Your, and Doth as well, it will go according to the rest of the composition...nice poem! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Archaic words usage though given classical tough but poem sounds too spanking new, elegant, refined & polished...wao (Report) Reply

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
