No more can I enjoy this world's delights --
No joy in its wide wonders do I find --
My eyes care not for such unworthy sights:
The beauty of your love has made them blind;

Bright majesty of neverending skies,
A crystal bowl of pure, unyielding blue,
Claims no regard from these distracted eyes,
Whose pleasure is to drink the sight of you.

The gentle intonations of your voice
That bind my ears in this hypnotic spell:
The Heavens' choirs produce no sweeter noise!
Mere paradise proffers no parallel

To feather touches, tender fingertips,
The rapture of your body pressed to mine,
Pure ecstasy, the savor of your lips;
Intoxicating as the finest wine.

More perfect verse than this shall never be:
For everything you do is poetry!

(for my love, my inspiration ... my traveler)

This is beautiful.....oh, I do love all these poems about love. Seems that bug has bitten another, eh?

hoot, I am doubtless bitten ... smitten ... hooked and otherwise helplessly in love All the beautiful love poetry that has turned up here over the past few days has been invigorating, pulled me out of my writer's block ... but in truth, my love is the one who breathes life into my poetry ...

DarkAngel, I am glad you enjoyed ... if the poem is beautiful, it is only because of the beauty of the emotion that engendered it ...

Thank you again.

A fine sonnet! and the final couplet...

For everything you do is poetry!"
Truly exquisite!

Seeing as how I'm quite certain the person this beautiful peice was writen for has yet to see it...I am shooting it back to the top.

I hope he sees it soon...I don't want to do this again.

traveler, I love you back ... though this description is mild compared to what my heart feels ... in this case, I think, speechless is a good thing!

Toe, I am flattered by the double post ... and I must agree, if everything your gal did was like your poetry, you'd be in trouble! You have a talent for "whomping" (for lack of a better word) that might be undesirable in a lover ... hee hee hee

Again, thank you all ... and now that this piece has served its purpose I promise not to bump it up again ...
