You’ve heard the story of the soldier’s locket:
A simple profile and tuft of her hair
Like the Mona Lisa in his pocket
He pined for her wanton smile, far off stare.
The Greek’s Nine Muses brought such inspired thought,
Charms, the female figure, the buds of Spring,
Physical, temporal, spiritual sought,
Such beauty of form, flying spirits bring.
In the palm of a hand, grace in a frame,
Desire touched by the tip of a brush,
Erato’s turtle doves, lyre, arrows, flame,
Sparrows sing, rays of Sun, verdant fields lush.
God drew your form, face, my inspiration;
My Muse, rapture, love, heart’s exultation.
