A Letter to all Queens

I know of a queen
the fairest of all women
the piles of all beauty
her speech is comely
and she has no spot in her
milk and honey are under her tongue

Burning like a flame tongue
with words she ravish the heart O' 
queen
her body secret is always with her
even king solomon has not seen in 
his women 

not because she is only wise and 
comely
but because she preserves treasures 
of beauty


If all queen astounds in all beauty
then i will not use my pen's tongue
to speak of her as the only comely
but i will write sun clear of not one 
queen
but to all daughters of women
which a queen can be found in her

    A regal verse Mat, you give such beauty to her but then it's hard to imagine an ugly queen. I wonder if there's ever been one.

    I wrote a comment here, I wonder where it went? .....I like this a lot (I must because as you can see I came back to it!)and I appreciate the form of writing "sestina complex" . Here's to all daughters which a queen can be found in her!". LT
