A Poem by Richard 🍃
"

Quatrains in Iambic Hexameter, with an aabb, ccdd, etc; Rhyme Scheme.

 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 whom 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*


-~~-

A beautiful tribute to female poets and love your rhyming

A finely crafted tribute to women poets. How wonderful Richard. That will put a smile on many faces for sure. I love your quatrains, each beautiful but the second with it's exceptionally delightful poetic expression has to be my favourite. Corn silken braids adds a touch of summer to a winter day. So very nicely composed, utterly charming.

So so very much enjoyable and absolutely amazing the way that joyfully the words dance in the reader's mind. I could hardly wait for the next word!!! The lady's and poetesses are most certainly to really love this sparkling, colourful, and vibrant poem. I love the title!!!! And though the entire poem is wonderful, my favourites were the first and third parts and also great finish!!! Superb Richard!!!!!

Oh you've opened the flood gates with this one, Richard!!!!

What a wonderfully considered and beautifully created happiness here. It's true, of course, ladies can have the upper hand when it comes to their choice of words, language.. but then again, you and your bless like can create tsunamis of your own but definitely not as lethal! How on earth you can express such genuinely considered phrases within such incredible meter is beyond my brain ( you know it's only pea size, anyway! )

What wonderful thoughts here laid: ' The shape she takes, it may be lithe or slightly slim … might be, she’s strong or stout; perhaps, just prim.' - - - ' 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* '

Wonderfully happy, sharing, and of course, absolutely TRUE! :)

What a wonderfully wonderful illustration, Richard!

Wonderful Richard just wonderful flawless flow and not a smidge of a sense of stricture in this most lofty structure frame you placed upon this write! This may be one of your very best poems and I don't say that lightly:) You know I love so very much when the lines intent melds so beautifully with the rhyme scheme that it feels like the word was designed for the piece and not vice versa you captured this perfectly simply blown away by this one I have read hundreds of your poems and this one stands out swimmingly. Its is a comfort to know that you and your style of write can still flourish in these times when structure and rhyme are not the vogue and dare I say sometimes frowned upon in popular poetry. I will never have your gift of structure (only a glimpse of it on occasion) My fractured bunny mind gets lost with too much structure but it is a lovely thing to read good sir!!!! Merry Christmas dear Richard

What about us blokes then!

Seriously, this is a really well written poem and puts praise precisely where it should be. Too often we hide ourselves and our true feelings away, not so though, the many female poets who bless the cafe with their insight and wisdom.

Seasons greetings to you and yours Richard. T
