O' Adonais famed lord of Beauty

O' Adonais famed lord of Beauty

A Poem by Eric Jameson

O' Adonais, famed lord of Beauty,
who out of Myrrha's womb emerged with life,
so full of lucent fragrancy.
And helped by Fancy's love, the wild boar's knife.
Herein foreshadowed, Adonis thy fate.
For Life is ever linked with Birth.
So Life in Birth is linked to Death's own gate.
But laugh thy Joy, O Adonis thy mirth.
Enjoy the Love you have, before it is too late.
Thou child whom Aphrodite cared,
within her sheltered favor fared
in comeliness, so growing day by day
 by Love's own Myrtle flower, there he lay.
So Adonis, whose smile glowed radiant bright;
his lambent face so kissed by Fancy's lips.
Soft Grace and sweet aroma shrouds her light
and filled his mouth with soothing Nectar drips.
'Twas here in Paradise, fair Adonis grew in might.
