Ensnare My Heart

"Ensnare My Heart" By M. Taha Effendi (Ballad) O beautiful maiden of my captive heart, Are not thou the lone bard's muse? With allure that inspired the divine art, Heavens' hand made thee with such delicate use, What sweet circumstance upon me befalls, My heart the endearing perfidy has plotted, Entombed in my bosom yet it beats to thy calls, Loves beyond reason the lover besotted, Let my soul swoon at thy eternal beauty awhile, Mesmerize by sheer fineness of thy chiseled cheek, Beguile by crimson roses that adorn thy seraphic smile, Savor in thee the splendor of which poets speak, Thy orbs gleaming lagoons of preserved vintage, Shades, the cerulean ocean, from their depths did lease, The jealous eye of heaven envies thy radiant visage, The blushing moon embarrassed cowers beneath the seas, Would thou shelter me in thy silken veil perchance? That imbue elation in those who wander in its shade, And sways to cadence of zephyrs in an eternal dance, To invoke dark urges of soul with a sublime serenade,

    I also wanted to say that you have an amazing grasp of the language. It isn't often I meet someone from another nationality who has such a beautiful command of Eenglish. I just wanted to say how I admire your descriptions in this lovely poem.

    fellow brethren, i hear the voice of the speaker, your soul weeps with mine that this world that out of it's gorb spouts love and fancies with such ease as the fountains with rusty waters misleadind and ignorant to their very own declarations. i say it, love assures you like a mother's touch. craddles and comforts in it's bossom in motherly fashion. you know nomatter what it won't change. forever you are free, to be.

    This is such a cool write. I always wished to write like this, though I love this style I find it difficult. You do it with excellence my dear. Thank you also for your comment on my spider poem. Love and Light Taha.

    Wow!!! Such deep and enchanting words! Excellent write. Thanks for stopping by me and for your comments. My poem, "My Summer's Moment", is not so much about the season, as it is about "My season", my husband understands, that's why I dedicated it to him. One love. Jew@Smalling
