YOUR ESSENCE

Your Essence pervades my clandestine avow -
Transcending the universe, ages, and now
Enveloping me with ethereal arms.

Beheld from afar that one self-same star,
My breath is entranced by mere visage of you;
Enrapturing eyes of impaling blue.

Poetic mellifluence hearkens to me -
As unto Bach's rhythmical rhapsody,
Symphonious dulcets of sweet violins.

Your delicate scent alights with the winds.
I feel your caress in the evening rains
Your touch, yet my reverie, still remains.

Your Essence enlightens the darkness of night
Awakening senses enthralled to new height -
Your Essence embraces my innermost soul.

Nay, if our wits run the Wild-Goose chase, I am done:
For thou hast more of the Wild-Goose in one of thy wits,
Than I am sure I have in my whole five.

You are enriching my vocabulary, thats for sure, Nan! And you used one of my favorite words, ethereal! (is it odd to have favorite words??? anyway..). So very beautiful..your words filled me with longing...I love it.
