Ballade Of My Lady's Beauty

Rating: 3.5
Squire Adam had two wives, they say,
   Two wives had he, for his delight,
He kissed and clypt them all the day
   And clypt and kissed them all the night.
   Now Eve like ocean foam was white
And Lilith roses dipped in wine,
   But though they were a goodly sight
No lady is so fair as mine.

To Venus some folk tribute pay
   And Queen of Beauty she is hight,

Giving full marks to the elegance and the beauty of some renowned ladies, the poet finds his muse a cut above the rest and he tells it quite gracefully. Great poem.

i find this poem delightful. i admit, though, i am positively inclined to kilmer from his justly famous poem trees. quite different than this one, but for some reason i'm reminded of shakespeare's sonnet which begins, my mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun. -glen

A beautiful, inspiring, elevating work of poetry. Not only a wondrous tribute to his loved one, but indirectly to the power of love itself to inspire the visage of beauty within the heart of the beholder. The cadence and rhyme move us at hastened clip through the entire sweep of history, revealing on the whirlwind journey that in his heart no beauty throughout all the sweep of human history can compare to the beauty of his loved one, until we arrive at the throne of Eros himself, where his case is presented with a surety of the answer.
