*Niafalls, the****** Antiope of Canada,
Amazonian, but not breast less,
***Snowy bosom like virginal gems,
Swelling lips moderately full,
Savoury odor felt all around,
****Crystalline throat striking the eyes.

Meandering, churning, darting, dashing,
Transformed from **blonde to brunette.
Here alluring, benign, attenuated,
There **corpulent, colossal, capering,
Practicing calisthenics all the time.

Raquel Welch in***** ‘One Million Years B.C.’
****Wily Cleopatra, the Scythian of Ordzhonikidze,
****Carnal Marilyn, matured Helen of Troy,
Venus in Aries, Mars in Pisces.

**Broad bellied, middle-aged, deep,
Now **bulging belle of Detroit,
Encircling the wooing Windsor,
Yet the Blithe spirit of Pelee Island.

***I have used:  Personification, Alliteration, Hyperbole, simile, metaphor and    synecdoche :

* Personification and Portmanteaus ** Alliteration   *** Metaphor  ****Simile

***** Hyperbole ******Antiope
Some of the phrases are Alliteration as well as simile and metaphor.

    The real beauty of the falls, which emotioned me about fifty years ago, has again emotioned me through your beautyful verses

    Apart of the beauty of your verse that rivals that of the Falls, Dr. Ram your poem offers a free course in Greek mythology plus other aspects and for this I am thankful. If you allow me to add a clarification though , just for the reader: The Amazons were not breast less by birth, they just were removing one breast for better use of the bow and arrow. As a Canadian I have visited many times the Falls and once, when student, I slept in the parking inside my car. It was marvelous! Excellent work!
