Feminine Beauty Poem by Lawrence Hiun

Feminine Beauty

Rating: 5.0


By the magical eyes of my beautiful doll
By her graceful figure, so slim, so tall

By the fountain of life that is in her lips
By her narrow waist and her swinging hips

By her lovely face that looks like a rose
By her glowing cheeks and her precious nose

By her silken tresses and her golden curls
By her voluptuous mouth which is full of pearls

By her playful eyes and the ways she winks
By the wine red and the way she drinks

By the musk and incense for her curly hair
By the scent that surrounds her everywhere

By the fragrant dust that blows in her street
By the sacred dirt that covers her feet

By her charming manners, her elegance, and grace
By her stately carriage, her poise, and her pace

For her pity and kindness does Hafiz crave
He remains her humble and a lowly slave.

I like this piece as it is quite playful and the ending line works really well.
