On Her Making

They poured a quart of moonlight milk
And added ruby, pearl and jade
They wrapped it up in softest silk
And so my lady’s face was made

They sprinkled drops of Angel Tears
And sang sweet songs from heaven’s fold
They mixed perfumes for seven years
And there’s her little heart of gold

They flicked a flare of fairy dust
And caught a film of silver cloud
They laced her blood with lickerish lust
See how she walks so light and proud

They baked cookies from her wondrous dreams
And flavoured them with racy wine
They filled them sweet with all my favourite creams
That’s why the lady’s heart is mine

  3. Beautiful imagery.

    I have a request: would you give us an idea when these poems were written so we can follow your growth as a poet?

    Thanks much:)

  8. Novisi, my friend, isn't Love such a great thing. Yet we do not really know it until it's gone. I'm sad.

  9. This is flawless poetry; the kind that awes you on the first read and that you read again to savor
