 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*


-~~-

what an artisan wordsmith you are richard, & a little flirty too !! 😉 wink
your poems never disappoint, & this beguiling poem casts a wonderful warm & descriptive spell around us female readers & elevates us onto a pedestal - very flattering, to be sure.
but really were just ordinary ol' women, which you're seeing through rose coloured glasses.

Thank you for writing this tribute to all the women writers who write poetry similar to yours . . . clearly this poem has nothing to do with women poets like me! *wink! wink!* But I don't feel left out. I do not aspire to be in this company, but there are many who are & it's a merry mutual admiration going on between yourself & these lyrical ladies! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Such sweet words with beautiful imagery. Your piece was like a gathering of a Lady's Poet Society recognizing the diversity of its membership, except that your wording was so much more gathering than the excited chatter such a gathering would be. In solitude, we write with grace. In meetings we chatter as we sip our brews. Together we stand to beautifully sing the song: Mistress of the Verse in the harmonies of our various parts. And you give each of us a cameo highlight to celebrate us, your counterparts. Thank you.

This is so very beautifully written and flows as gently off the readers mind as it lies in printed pen - one of my favourites so far. Thank you for sharing this exquisite poetry :)

A beautiful tribute to all the great lady poets
I’m sure I’m not included more of an amateur ditty writer here well done I say thanks for elevating the ladies up now it’s time for us women to write of our men poets if only words could describe adequately how some have encouraged me from the time I was a newbie here Shy and unsure groping in the vines of this cafe that grew outside the windows to make me feel welcome Not not so stupid where I could sit at the back bench of the cafe and look, write run competitions and just feel at peace here where I didn’t feel judged
Thanks to you all you know who you are !

This comment has been deleted by this poetry author.
I am quite fond of this poem, especially since my two favorite all-time poets are Dickinson, one, and Plath, two.
There is something both soft and strong in their writings all at the same time...and vulnerability shines through....Plath led the life expected, subservient for the most part. But she was really strong in her poetry and like she said in Lady Lazarus ..."i eat men like air"--
Fourth verse, line three should be "who"---
but wow, such a tribute to the past female poets as well as to the marvelous female poets we have on this site----an abundance of great voices.
Well expressed, Richard.
