Erato Nyx

Credit: Tracy Dixon
Her mouth - a rose in newest bloom; her breast the source of sweet perfume; her arms and legs a tender snare; wondrous rapture nestles there!

In ancient times she was the queen of the night with lyric rhymes of love and delight. Now her kind has come again to enchant the minds and hearts of men!

She glides in beauty through the night.

She reveals endowments, which excite.

She engorges us with sound, with scent and sight.

Be there men with souls so dead

They never to themselves have said

We crave this being of magic bred.

In times of old far in the past

She rose from foam men’s hearts to grasp

She wrung from them a yearning gasp.

Oh, vision of glamour, desire, and youth

Who rends not with fang, nor claw, nor tooth

But with wile and smile and scorching truth

Please hear our plea and soothe our plight

Kindle passion's flames and fan them bright

To leave us trembling spent in sheer delight!

Wow! "Erato Nyx"..I'm Struck. I'm beyond blushed, appeased, thrilled, or honored. I'm at a place..before the place where words form..a space where I am flying and floating..doe eyed and wide. Stagnant and Suspended.

I'm so High..

There are no suitable words to express your ability to describe how you see me..only few do justice to how I feel...from your description.

But, I can (say) I adore you, Larry. I adore this..and Thank You :)

Your perceptiveness persists. Your description of the honoree is spot on!

As you know more than most, inspiration brings out the poet in this old warrior.

It was a pleasure to write this poem and a delight to read your comment.

As ever, each word is cherished!

She would indeed by the one you so aptly describe as "our own sexy Muse."

Simply giving credit where it abundantly due! Glad you and the others found it pleasing.
