Affectation Of My Wiles, (Love Letters To A Lady Of Renown)

Dear Lady,
loquacious in your speech,
you tempt me with challenges
as tart as they are sweet.
If indifference wills your mind
and deems my words uncouth
I officiously entrain
though your heart remains aloof.
With affectation of my wiles
and preponderance of guilt
the black rose I laid at your feet
shall bleed but never wilt.

Old trees! ! With the muse of life. Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
Good morning Sandra, a beautiful personification of nature and beautiful wordings, I enjoyed, Loyd
Oh Sandra, your poetry evokes such emotion. Bittersweet this one but nevertheless oh-so-beautiful. HG: -)
This is beautiful Sandra, your personification of nature is second to none. Your words not only paint pictures but they create music too...this is one to savour...
Breathtaking in its diction and content.10
