I experimented with the form for the first time several years ago


A simple talisman adorns her hair

A simple talisman adorns her hair
A pure white magnolia bloom
Astounding beauty sensual pair

I cannot but genuflect and stare
Launched into a grand peacock plume
A simple talisman adorns her hair

As inevitable as time her fair
Features twine raven hair perfume
Astounding beauty sensual pair

As I approach I note the blind eyes with out compare
Her mettle plied against a smiling costume
A simple talisman adorns her hair

I cannot help but feel her gentle care
As I fall in an unconcious swoon
Astounding beauty sensual pair

I wake to a loving desire
As her gentle touch removes my heart's gloom
A simple talisman adorns her hair
Astounding beauty sensual pair
