Venus and Her Consort

Wealthy round moons supple
rise up to support a lovely neck
and from this cape, earth, itself
forms up to a beauteous beck

An enticing chin set in the cape
to crown a balanced jaw
Whose lines be accented in ink
So inviting to the tracing paw

Two inviting chutes converge
above the ravishing furrow below
luscious lips’ ripe red wine
arched like the cupid’s bow

From which melodies decant
gurgle like sweet spring’s flow
to the farmer an enticing tempt
on rungs of life, something to sow

The nose centered bright
balanced like a beautiful ridge
between two glistening mounds
spread delicate a firmly bridge

High cheek bones firm like apples
an aroma from heaven’s pluck
spur for the lovelorn solitary trudge,
smitten, reach up for the thirsty tuck

Sparkling gems so invitingly speak
language of Venus and her consort
yet so much to contend with
are legions of love and their cohort

Ringed all this in ample furls
that set the direction for eager sails
plenty the tresses, winsome the curls
lead onto mysteries, valleys and dales

    Recommenting... She is, i am so lucky see both of you smiling enjoying day after days...as if the broken flower budding new and fresher one, where the scented air is more intense...to call any bees or butterflies enjoy over its sweetness..Venus has brightening sky to let Mars smile more red on the ground...so beautifully written, wishing you both have greatest and longer happiness...ever and forever! i am so happy with this +_SOul (Report) Reply

    A lovely lyric sung in praise of love and beauty, written with grace and finesse. Metaphors strewn from the first line to the last like gems...the composition itself speaks so powerfully that it feels unnecessary to say anything more about it, kudos Saadat Tahir! (Report) Reply

    @ poet's notes: quite believable!
    welcome back with a poem with strongly encoded metaphors, so Ulysses is back after the Odyssey! ! ! (Report) Reply

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
