A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever, as Keats wrote and I cite him here for your creation, Adrian! A 10 and much much more you deserve. I so admired reading this time and again. Keats was right.
Such a loveliest verse to describe this love, the spirit wants to, but the flesh is too weak, I would say., Adrian. Well worded, and a fascinating read altogether. Congratulations on being chosen as The Member Poem Of The Day. Hurray and God´s Blessings in Abundance, Amen.
