La Primavera

Spread the love

Botticelli-primavera

Through the symphonic voices of nature whose
purity evokes no doubt; insinuate thus realm of
Venus. Lo! at glimpse of hence bewitching sight
we observe the three handmaidens. Thus chassis
veiled along with mist pirouette around in mirth;
Zephyrus preys withΒ avarice and lust fecundates
Flora upon the hearth.

Charites with their visions scheme; plead mercury
roaring abreast of crowd. Closeby Cupid’s murmur
aids; bid clouds above to dissipate. Amid the chaos
Venus chants – roseate glow of flambeau. Lo! eyes
unused begin to flow – anguish, misery, dolor and
woe. The last of leaves cling to bough.

At night thus angels croon and fret;
The tales of yore won’t soon forget.

  4. To see the past vividly and to retell it over and over,,,,,there is something almost scary about that. Love how your poem harks back to a different age of expression. Beautiful

  16. Poem is beautiful as the language you use. It transports me to an era I never lived, and I found myself scanning your site for historical stories, fiction, anything to delve more into your writing. I hope you’ve thought about the possibility, your writing is beautiful.β™₯
