Marie-rose de Beauharnais

A Poem by Joseph C Ogbonna

An imaginary love letter to Josephine de Beauharnais by Napoleon Bonaparte

To what shall I liken thee?
An angel in realms above,
a mermaid in Oceans beneath,
a costly stone in the fiercest
contention sought for,
or even a costly diamond in the
earth's elusive epicentre buried?
Your beauty is a turning point
reference in your amazing book
of chronicles.

Napoleon Bonaparte
