# Helen!

/* Inspiration from Edgar Allan Poe's 'To Helen' */


Inside thy lovely dewy azure
The Aegean can't ever be sure
Waves plunder a Trojan shore
Foams revolt a tempest, El Amor

Like an antic flute from a folklore
In tune the ship dances, so doth the sea floor!
Winds in vain kissing thy crimson, La Amor
Ah! Those two lovely arches! Sirens deplore!

Helen! Thy soft glow in thine eyes
A valiant Hector dies!
Death like a steely blade in all shine
Yet Love will never cease to be Divine!
