Odes to Her

Ode to Her 1 

Lean arms reach, delicate fingers wave
She stares, beckons, flirts
Her soft surface covers secrets
A famous man lies in the depths
of her darkness,
An unknown man plied her lengths
He writes of her beauty
He sings over her with rejoicing.


Ode to Her 2

He rejoiceth over her with words
His camera captures her form
His eyes follow her comely lines.
Many pass her and never notice
the shapely hips
the long loins,
She waves and invites the strangers
She winks and smiles. Come to me
and I will give thee joy.
One man hears
He writes a date
He plans his return.
