Keep Singing Solomon

I tried to write a poem the way that Solomon wrote about his prize, But you don’t seem to fit the mold you don’t have a pair of flighty eyes. And evidently he liked the fact and it seems that it raised his hopes, When he would sniff her hair and it smelled just like mountain goats. And I think that your dental hygiene is something you should keep, Evidently his girl’s teeth were fuzzy and reminded him of sheep. I really don’t mean to bring him down by making these funny quips, But I would have to truly say there’s nothing threadlike about your lips. And apparently his girl’s temples looked like a pomegranate slice, When I look at you, your face is fruit free and I think that’s very nice. Your neck does a fantastic job and I could nuzzle it by the hour, But I can’t say that there is anything about it that reminds me of a tower. And when my eyes wander lower than your neck to see your special features, There’s nothing about them that vaguely reminds me of any woodland creatures. So I don’t know if my ability is hindered by my talents or by your good looks, But I’d sure like to see a picture of his girl; I bet she’d be one for the books.

    Tony, this one got my attention by the humor in it..I hope that it was only in jest and not that you really thought that was what it was saying..I asked my husband about the comparison to animals in the scripture and he said that you would have to be a farmer to understand that the King saw these animals as beautiful..Anyway I got several chuckles..Thanks for taking the time to enter..I appreciate you participating..Sara

    good old Solomon of the wise, offered to part a child by slice, the caring mother she went crook, so he gave the babe to that old chook, not other wise....

    I'm not familiar with Solomon's Song, but I've heard it's full of dreamlike imagery. Great way to interpret! LOL, love it : )

    oh,my, this makes me REALLY want to get out the Bible and review those verses. I know the first time I read old Testament, my eyes kind of glazed over in Isaiah. And I don't recall what I did during Solomon! This will be quite the challenge and I hope i can do as well as you!

    Tony, you are truly a gifted man. Hilariously entertaining. Love it! Kim

    Haha! Well done, Tony, well done. You wrapped everything up with a strong ending too. "When he would sniff her hair and it smelled just like mountain goats." Whoa. That was some strong woman, eh?

    Oh, Tony!!! My belly hurts, I had to get up to pee in the middle, and I'm cryin' which makes me have to remove glasses to wipe eyes. Only you, dude, only you! Love it and you~N
