The Marvel Of Peru Does Flower (Rubiyat Sonnet) - Poem by Gert Strydom

(for Annelize)

After the last big summer shower
afternoon-ladies wildly do flower,
and in all of my days I miss you intensely
as if our love has got a hidden power

and it\s a fact that you are special to me,
the perfect woman brought by destiny
but with love I do remain utterly stupid
do not its effect, its outcome clearly see,

and do not as a woman understand you
where my love constantly burns true,
want to tell you the deep things of my need
bring you bunches of flowers out of the blue

while to you my heart with love sings
where I want to love you in all things.
