 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*


-~~-

This poem is so lovely it plays like a melody.
So tender and silky, it speaks to me.
How many hearts have you stolen or left throats swollen?
My dear man you are a rare gift with song,
Please don't keep me not waiting long
For another chance to hear your voice
Please understand I have no choice.
I'd love to dance to your tune
In the hour of midnights first June.
(Ok hardly is it advice to give or comment made. But I had to answer in this way, for to read your words is to dance in celebration to a man who celebrates women. Thank you for sharing

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.

Wow I don't know how but this slightly resembles my poem coincidentally,in the adjectives and descriptions used but your poem is far too awesome and is content , theme in tribute is different as in marvellous charming gallant tribute to all fine poetesses of all variety. I hope the list includes me sometime in the future. Kudos!!!

Plz pleez do read and comment my newest too.
