A Riff on Yor's Erato


Never take a Muse as lover
They lay still beneath the covers
They surely stiffen at your touch
They do not like the body much;

They prefer to be cerebral
Their bodies boney and quite feeble;
Approach her with a reverent mind,
And don't pat her on bare behind

    Her body’s curvaceous design so wondrous and divine
    with contours all neat and so fine captures this heart of mine.
    Confronted by beauty like this I just cannot resist
    to succumb to her world of bliss and surrender to loves kiss. (Report) Reply

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
