The Bedding of Anne Boleyn

by Matthew McKewon   Mar 3, 2019

The blood red wine of
seeping into marigold
sheets of desire-

political fires,
in need of quelling-

a kingdom broiling over
in anticipation-

of a life barging in quickly-

one night of passion
the melding of lives-

a royal heir needs
to be granted

    I love the whole layout of this poem, how you seem to drag the reader into the next scene with a rhyming word, very clever of you.

    I also loved the word choice and, although it was a short poem it was very, very classy IMO. I will definitely be back to nominate this one when it's possible....
