For Melissa B.
What would you desire; words enchanting
Your heart, or igniting flames in thy soul?
I can wield them; create by descanting
Upon love and veiled lust with quill and scroll.
Inspired by a grace unseen, my pen
Takes flight, striving to reveal some small truth
With verse; granting immortality when
Thy mem’ry lives on in eternal youth.
Let those lips I long for whisper the tune,
And rhymes will flow praising sapphire eyes,
Brighter, by fancy, than the Sun and Moon –
But, fair comparison to things enskied.
A new muse fires imagination,And I return songs of adulation.
