Ode to Eternity


Her vassalage henceforth I am condemned

A saintly visage adorned both sweetly

Coated twice on gilded vines stemmed

Great her presence filmed and veil’d completely

Suffer my melancholy and lightly blend


Twist round these grapes your ruby lips entwined

 That bless’d cup forth brought my jealous ire

To be upon her soft blanket consumed

 A sorceress heavenly created once divined
For to her I stalwart carry, stretching out to blackest spire

Not reaching. Grasping for without her touch, posthumed

Rave tonight to lightest meadowlark

Rave into the fires of lore

 Defy what ‘verse denied our spark

And slumber together evermore

    I really liked this poem. I think the tone works very well with the flow of the poem and the wording is something not seen as much lately. Great job! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
