To My Heart's Keeper


Amorous pools sable and deep
Set lightly upon lustrous smile
Thy moonlit skin my heart doth keep
Stow’d away upon distant isle
Evermore to serve thy desire
Thy will my own ‘till I retire

A word, a phrase, to part thy lips
If only a whisper received
Force unmatched by one thousand ships
Seraphic design ‘ways believed
Speak unto my eternal soul
And place it under thy control

    I enjoyed this poem and thought the rhyme scheme very helpful in the flow of the poem. The old English style was a very nice touch. I loved it. (Report) Reply

    I love the meter and verse, and the classical style of your poetry. Of all of the poets I've read over the last week, I would say your style and mine are most akin. I will read more of your work.

    Add me as friend. Maybe you'd enjoy reading some of my verse as well. (Report) Reply
