Apollo's ephemeral kiss upon
The nymph's expectant face, with open arms
Aspiring to enfold ennobled charms,
But in a twinkling you, the sun, are gone.
Like the lush, though brief, light of Endymion
The rapid flow of sand through glass with you,
Ethereal moments - so precious few -
Is that robust gush from World's empyrean!
This reign, with aeolian gasps to rouse the trees,
In its wake, does make refulgent colors
And subdues the thirst of parched flowers.
Yet, I glimpse our fate scrawled on Sybil's leaves,
Blown by the noble Zephyrus with ease,
And, in haste, gather what I can of these.

my love-struck state
makes me too grim
and utter words more suited
for some requiem!
when what i sought to say
yet failed to convey
in my standard solemn way is...
Dearest, Happy Valentine's Day!
...i really need to see a therapist about this inclination to rhyme

you are annoying, seven_pentacles!
**in defense of love's noble name**
see aphrodite lament
such sallow sentiment.
while erato seeks redress
for every senseless verse;
of "love" tritely unveiled
and foolishly declared!
"lovers", forgive me hence,
my impudent offence;
in earnest, i defendand aspire to amend
harm to love's noble name,
uttered in shameless vain!
ergo, i will make haste
to save love from disgrace.
nay, i must move with stealth
to keep eros from death;
for when love turns mundane,
surely, it has been slain!

" i may have
such small hands;
touch of your lovely face
this needing soul.
i can only understand,
you were thinking,
you have such small hands,
happy valentine's, dearest.
