A Beauty, Ripening

A Beauty, Ripening

A Poem by Gleb Zavlanov

Yet another serenade


My love, my love, I’d love to tell

    Was just as fair as one may be

Her lovely eyes like waves that swell

    Athwart the pearl-laden sea


Her lips were sweet and just as lush

    As red roses, fresh, one to kiss

Her voice in song is like the rush

    Of rivers those who sing with bliss


Her hair as gold as sunshine rays

    Her skin as white as driven snow

Her touch like first of summer days

    When high the golden sun does glow


She is an elf, an elfin queen

    Upon her hair, the bloom of spring

And in her eyes, her soul, a sheen

    A beauty, fresh and ripening

Love creates a veritable garden out of everything, and I loved the redolence of your words. Walking through this garden has been a delight! There are simply too few poets in the world than can deliver this kind of bouquet.

Thank you.
This is brilliant on many levels! I'm glad I stumbled upon your poetry, as I love it, man! You have an innate grasp of rhyme and rhythm, and that drives your poetry forward. There are many eminently quotable lines in this poem, and I will be doing a disservice to the poem if I quote just one or two lines. So I'll be content with adding this to my favourites. You have a great talent! Thank you for sharing this.
