To you and you alone!

To you and you alone!

Amorous pools sable and deep

Set lightly upon lustrous smile

Thy moonlit skin my heart doth keep

Stow’d away upon distant isle

Evermore to serve thy desire

Thy will my own ‘till I retire


An oxymoron, a Metonymy, to part thy lips

If only a whisper received

Force unmatched by one thousand ships

Seraphic feelings  from ‘ways easy  believed

Flows into my eternal soul

And place it under thy control



Dedicated to the lady that kept my pen overflowing with ink

whose endless love kept loads of inspiration gushing into my gifted skull
