These are
ginkgo days;
and we,
autumnling,
Arcadian
asphodel,
blooming
away from
the sandals
of shepherds,
who trample;
myrtling victors
and wreathing
the walls of
sea-lucked caves,
Arachne-webbed
and dew-bedecked,
where
jewel-rosetted
nymphs make
play;

and is it because
you are not
quite as
gentle
as me
that I
fear and despair?
chastity chaos
but never was
one so
considerately
fair;

it's simple
to love when
you're watching
the world with
such grace
from a place
in the
grass by
a lake far
away.
Slightly different from the way I usually write... I'll catch up on comments soon. I have been busy with reading group and making preparations for our newly formed poetry society at uni, Symposium. :) Poetica gratia poeticae!

Wonderful demonstration of less as more. I enjoyed your use of line breaks to allow more "surface area" to the reader's eye...it really helped me as the reader to absorb the words and rhythms you employed. The mythological allusions are wonderful, and the poem is well paced. Well done.

I meant to reply to your comment ages ago, because it meant such a lot to me! I always hope that reading my poems is something like looking at a Pre-Raphaelite painting, so I appreciate your comment a great deal. :)

You have painted a very elegant and floral picture before my eyes! It has put me to a 'pastel' mood especially when I read the last lines! :heart:
