I.
Time doth stand still, whilst thou art in mine arms,
The moon itself doth cease to cross night's sky,
As Luna's glow cedes to thy welkin charms,
In wond'rous awe, the sparkle of thine eyes,
Ignites mine soul, Fair Rose, in passion's fire,
I espy thy eidetical vision,
Mine eyes, they drink from well of thy desire,
And am sated by depth of thy passion.
I smell the fragrant scent of heaven's bloom,
Caress thy skin, sweet grace of supple limb,
Thy tender voice, in warmth mine heart entomb,
With songs of muse, My Rose, my seraphim.
But then the morn, sweet sorrow of goodbye,
As wait the night, to touch upon the sky.

Such purity and tender murmurings in your writing, Mike.

"The moon itself doth cease to cross night's sky,"

To choose just one of your poems as a favorite, I would be hard pressed...but this has to come close.

"Thy tender voice, in warmth mine heart entomb," --Mike, I think it is you that has the tender voice.

Wow.

One word instantly springs to mind - melodious - this is like a song. Wonderful, Mike!

Mike~
I like the words to your song.

'I espy thy eidetical vision'

Such child-like imagery steeped
in fully imbued admiration.

Beautiful, Mike.

Thank you all very much for the kind words.
This was the eighth sonnet to a Rose, and I am pleased they are still being enjoyed.
