My Lover’s Physique


My lover’s physique is youthful
like a tender sprout leaf!

her teeth look like pearls!

Her body smells
with a nice fragrance!

Her eye paste smeared eyes
look sharp like spears!

Her shoulders
appear to have made of bamboo!

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
