Oh, gracious God, fill my desire,
Apollo, with your soothing lyre,
Command the everlasting dance!
Evoke in me the bygone love,--

The days of rapture and romance!
And let the Cupid from above
Turn green with jealousy and envy,
And glimmer in the somber sky!

Apollo, with affection, hand me
The gifts of Muses and then, I
Shall write of love as none before me
Have ever loved nor ever wrote!

And then the mortals shall adore me,
And fancy wisdom of my thought.
Then, dear Apollo, I shall praise
And with my pen recite your grace!

dear master:
     you've left me absolutely breathless... oh, that i could write with such eloquence... it seems that apollo and the muses have not only smiled upon you, but infused you with their abilities...

sincerely,
a sad tomato

 you're such a beautiful freak... i wish there were more just like you...

i really like this poem master. the rythem sceme is a little hard to follow but still flows perfectly once you get into it, great analogies, great rythems, great feeling put behind it
i love it!

 always follow your heart, never follow others unless it is truely where you want to go, and never give up a dream, maybe just set it aside for a while... :)
