Before the Sunlit Window


Her form was silk and elegance a perfumed silhouette

Before the sunlit window sill as breezes blew the tress

That she had neatly pinned along her neck of lily white

And as she sat with lifted arms I gazed in pure delight

As fabric clung to milky breasts so sheer that I could see

Every indentation of her flesh from underneath

Waiting for my fingertips to trail along her skin

Surely she just bit her lip then bit her lip again

Oh honey ripened bliss beneath a golden ringed nose

What mystic drink contained within this solitary rose

Perched intently on her ship I’d sail the seven seas

To be astray inside the pools of eyes as dark as these

Sparkling as a billion stars that fill the brightest sky

To light the way to one more day within my lover’s sigh
