Elements Embracing

Oh wind that taunts time's steady hands, turns tepid hearts estranged to rhyme, that wails life's first brazen breath, exhales essence passing. Oh sun that tempers gelid gales, parches lips once cupid kissed, bathes blithe days in honey glows, sows seeds to flowers facing. Oh rains that soothe a searing sky, wither towers to gods ordained, drip as tear-drops hope divest, and feed spring's banquet splashing. Oh earth that breaks the seas tempest, shakes forged citadels to sand, moves in mortals, self entranced, weaves tangled webs enlacing. Oh love that wiles on the wind, waters wilting passions fresh, enkindles solemn shores again, binds elements embracing.

    Yes, a nice practice with alliteration here and you got some great lines in here too. My favorite thing in poetry is imagery, and alliteration makes it all the better!
