Romantic Mush

Folks who know me are aware that I seldom write romantic mush.
Such saccharine verse is alien to me and causes me to blush!
But just this once I'll paraphrase some verse upon which you may muse.
Perhaps it'll arouse your curiosity, but as to its source I'll provide no clues!

"Ah!  How beautiful you are, my darling, there is no flaw in you!
My heart begins to pound for you - my head is drenched with dew!
Your breasts are like two fawns - like the twin fawns of a gazelle!
How beautiful you are with your delights that I know so very well!"

"You are as fair as the moon and stars, your smile brightens the dawn!
Your temples are like pomegranate halves my precious sprightly fawn!
Your graceful legs are like jewels, the work of a craftsman's hands!
Thy lilting voice is as melodic as a legion of celestial bands!"

"Your lips are like a lovely ribbon and so lovely is your mouth!
Thy arms that embrace me are like a gentle zephyr from the south!
You have stolen my heart with but one glance from thy limpid eyes!
You are as graceful as the majestic eagle as it soars through pristine skies!"

"You lips drop sweetness as the honeycomb, my precious bride!
How I long to have you forever more walking at my side!"
'Tis beyond this mortal to write such mush or any like it thereof!
Check out Solomon's Song of Songs for more such lurid tales of love!

    All I can say is you can write "mush" any time. The Song of Solomon is enhanced with this lovely verse so now write one of your wife!

    You couldn't fool me. I knew where it came from. When my husband to be was courting me, he often used the words of Solomon in his letters to me. My husband is a preacher and writes all his own sermons. He says he can't write poetry, but his letters were rich with Solomon's words. Bob how is your wife doing? I hope you are getting the proper rest you need so that you don't burn out. I like your poem very much. By the way, I'm just a little over 200 with my poems.

    hahaha, I once wrote a sonnet very similar to this, and I gave it a title implying it was trite (making fun of that style of mushy writing)! It's fun to see you doing something like that with this one!!
