About the Poem

This is how I see her, though others may disagree. My Love is to me, a Classic Beauty.

Classic Beauty

Through timeless ages immemorial
Thy radiant beauty hath shone like the sun.
In poet's books and art's pictorials
In musicals enjoyed by everyone,
Thy "face that launched a thousand ships," reborn.
The goddess Aphrodite Queen of love
A beauty to whom gallant knights had sworn,
Angelic Mercy from the heav'ns above
From legendary sagas o'er the land
Thy graceful elegance and beauteous charm
Enchanting song enslaves the hearts of man
Unspoken promise that their nights you'll warm.
A vision from ethereal worlds of dreams
An inspiration - Classic Beauty seems.
