 U l t i m a t e Po e t e s s

-~~-

Her ink vibrates in universal amplitude,

with such sure vibrant force pure ecstasies exude …

releasing with each graceful sweep of every stroke,

her words resound upon the page, as tho’ they'd spoke.

-~~-

Her flowing mane, as ebon as the Stygian night,

or golden as soft-textured braids, corn-silken bright.

I’ve seen her auburn waves, as hot as Hades’ fire;

or, lustrous brunette strands, that spark ardent desire.

-~~-

Oh, passion’s touch, awake unto life’s fervent dreams,

that evermore, desires and wantings merge as streams.

From every heartsong pours her sweet elixir’s voice,

eternal rapture ~ captured … aye, you'll have no choice.

-~~-

The shape she takes, it may be lithe or slightly slim …

might be, she’s strong or stout; perhaps, just prim.

She’s every woman who has bravely shared her heart,

learned how to charm us with her wonders from the start.

-~~-

Each smitten bard in every land and realm worldwide,

has surely yearned to have her writing by his side …

impressive with her graceful wisdom’s keen surprise,

indulge him with the magic in her spark’ling eyes,

-~~-

If Free Verse, Sonnet, Villanelle, or lovely Prose,

it matters not what kind of poem she bestows;

for, when she blends her heart and soul into her ink,

it's hers you'll be ~ when she signs with a knowing wink*


-~~-

I really like this. The rhyming was nicely done and the image it was paired with is very pretty. The only thing I would notice that it was a bit hard to read because of the font and coloring, but that could just be me. Overall, really well done in my opinion (though that's not worth much.) Good job!

The second stanza sounds a lot like Petrarch with the description of the hair! Might he have been an inspiration there?

OOPS!
I almost forgot to say, "Thanks for the read."
Hey Sir Richard!
Hope you'd remember me because I do very well. I'm revisiting writerscafe after so long, like after ages... I've been depressed, lacking any desire to write anymore, procrastinating a lot.
Coming to this excellent poem,
I truly felt a connection. It feels like my kinda poetry.
It is a poem praising a poetess, crowning her for her glory.
As you try to carve out all her details, her portrait fills my eyes!
The picture is perfect.
Thank you so much for sharing a poem worth millions in my view.

Brilliant Richard, just brilliant as you weave perfect poetry with a Shakespearean humour! And such an acute observation as we the weaker the sex do succumb so readily to the charms of red ink!
