How Beautiful Are Thy Feet With Shoes

A Poem by Delmar Cooper

 How fair and how pleasant you are, O love, for delights!

Unveil as wontons will.

 Drop your robes of green, your robes of gold.

Reveal to me your nakedness.

Stretch out your white limbs, tremble in the air.

There is no skin so smooth, so cool to my touch.

Your neck is as a tower of ivory.

 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field.

How fair and how pleasant are you, O love, for delights!

My beloved is white and ruddy,

Come for me Beloved.

 Awake, O north wind; and come now south; blow upon my garden,

Blow away care and garment.

Reveal now beauty cruel and kind wind.

That the spices thereof may flow out.

no problem whatsoever, my pleasure................Neville.
This is what I call fancy writin'. Being ignorant of the various forms of poetry, I will say that this is exhilarating, sensuous and fun to read.

Everyone else saw nature, I saw only sensuality. To me, this poem was about creation; conception... and I loved it. I'd like to keep it somewhere close and read it every day.

I borrowed liberally from the Bible. They say steal from the best.
It's very beautiful, describing, great imagery and metaphor. You've certainly have talent, you know. :)

There are times when the writer is blessed with gift from the rare portion of his divine being. I say this because it is here!

I came by to taste the currents again... leaning back and into the air - comfortably - doesn't take practice just ...oh, that WOULD be telling wouldn't it?

I'm still trying to figure out how to listen live. Life is hard for the technically challenged.

I'll try it again first chance I get.
Splendid personification of the sycamore, the beauty in "nakedness" - nature doesn't "hang on" to her robes much metaphorically speaking.
Loved the language in this - it did very much sound like a psalm.
