Mine Love (Old Write, Old School)

by Ben   Dec 15, 2017

I hath fallen deeply for thee, 
mine eye seeketh for thine smile,
mine hand reaches for thine touch...

whilst mine eyes are open 
acting a wondrous play 
of purest beauty.

Adorned with finest lace 
chrysanthemum in thy hair, 
thou wander twixt mighty oaks 
in the vale of imagination.

Fairies sing in thy palm 
as thou bathes within glorious nature. 

For I cannot come close....... 

Watched from a distance as an apparition 
mine presence is not needed.... 

To spoil such an effigy as this 
would bring a travesty of justice 
to mine serene...

Thy omnipresence here doth suit 
thee as an angel in heaven,
thy serenading nymphs as angels 
soft mosses under thou bare feet as clouds 

Thou art truly natures child 
as refinement amongst beauty..... 

I sigh as mine heart yearns for thee 
as thou comes to rest 
by the secluded rock pool 

Absently playing with leaves 
upon the clearest of waters, 
as sunlight dapples 
and dances upon your brow 

A smile of ethereal charm 
eradiates from thou visage 
as the perfect bloom 
from the rarest flora 

There lyeth the moment...
The moment of mine love 
surrendering to thee.

    I am a fan of everything Old English and when I do come upon a piece I would just appreciate the atmosphere created by the old language. This is just my opinion, but I struggled with some parts of the flow here. Yay, I am not really an expert, I just think for pieces such as this the flow is important to create that atmosphere. I think some of the lines have old words but have modern structure. That aside, your vocabulary here is very rich and exquisite. I adore this nonetheless.
