CORA PEARL, PARIS, 1860


Soft, onyx ringlets adorn her décolletage

and strong hands embellish her tiny waist,

This expert horsewoman, trained in dressage, 

was also tutored in arts far less chaste.

Voluptuous and droll, eager to please,

each lover wants that long, breathless mewl,

a skilled courtesan entertains men with ease,

so, in return, they divert her with jewels. 

Oh, diamonds may fascinate but seem cold,

while rubies compete with her upturned lips,

sapphires are lovely, emeralds somewhat bold,

and she’d once danced with just jade on her hips. 

Though lustful gents bestow the gems of the world,

Cora desires the blackest of pearls.
