Her Beauty Shines

by Mark   Sep 10, 2018

Could which of nature's art, out-glow her grace?
Of silver specks in night, I start with ease;
her pupils win as deeper they, than space,
should stars so blued, auroral night - she'd seize!

As solar orange fuses morning sky
that but a glimpse of beauty I behold,
when dreams awake she enters then mine eye
the golden sunbursts were as tho' my mold.

If clouding vapour then above appease
and raindrops drip her hair as red as wine
her pageant dousing, even humbles trees!
For Winter's peers outdone by her own shine.

Partake above and let all plush combine!
And still would splendor short - to lady mine.

    Breathtakingly beautiful, Mark! I love the old English romantic vibe...and no words on your choice of words or rhyming...they're really perfect.

    Mark I only made one attempt and I quit after that.
    You on the other hand not only writing them but adding life to them. Once again choice of words is something beyond my imagination. Heavenly experience I must say.
