Truly, you are the stuff of which
a million naughty dreams
To top a sharp incisive mind
and sense of freedom
from the things which occupy
the poorer of your peers,
you are a woman of whom men
should speak in awe
and one to whom they naturally defer
when reason rules.
What a pity that they often lack
that simple but essential thing -
the common sense to see and understand
that, in a girl like you, all the major virtues
Those auburn tresses, reaching down to touch
your waist, are but a perfect match
for eyes which sparkle and belie
a slightly naughty but delicious sense
of fun. Your mouth which pouts and lips
which part in a most sensual way
simply help to form a ready and overtly
And, mindful as I am, of serious ambition,
allow me to pursue a line of thought which says
that, if those natural and delightful attributes
subtend to a desire to be the best,
no matter what the cost, you risk the loss
of that most precious and invaluable thing
that which makes you what you are:
a lovely and most thought provoking friend.
My love to you in all you seek and think you need
And here’s a fervent hope, that when the time is right,
we may be closer friends ’ere long.
This a homage to a girl I once knew. She was quite one of the most beautiful and sensuous creatures it has ever been my pleasure to squire around town for several months.
Since I moved away from London, we have lost touch.
