O' precious Rose, when I gaze upon thy splendor,
As eyes espy, beauty of thy bloom resplendent,
I cede control; unto thee mine heart surrender,
Forevermore, enslaved to thy love transcendent.
When thou doth speak, from forth thy lips, love's madrigal,
From forth thy tongue, pour words that flow as honeyed mead;
Upon my ears, doth fall Erato's call,
And in response, to thee eternal love decreed.
Thy tender touch, as soft as glow of Luna's light,
I feel thy satin kiss upon my weathered brow,
Enraptured by thy silken charms, I yearn the night,
To thee fair Rose, my everlasting love avow.
Thou love doth transport me to far side of the wind,
O' precious Rose, my love to thee doth time transcend.

Absolutely Beautiful Mike....very nicely written and extreamly romantic.

Nicely done, Mike. I am by nature not a fan of archaic language used in modern poetry but at least your voice was consistent throughout. I especially liked the line:
"I feel thy satin kiss upon my weathered brow," I look forward to reading more by you :-)

I love the poem! Love the words, love the style....It's nice to 'read' you again! This kind of poetry is hard to write but you've done a superb job!
