Valentine Poetry

Amorous Verbiage

Sultry sonnets for sundry sweethearts

Sonnet no.1
“Union of Eros and Gaea”

Hark, noble gentlemen and ladies fair
Upon this day of everlasting love
View prose written under a nom de guerre;
Cunning linguistics shall be used thereof
For none wholly snuffs the erotic flame
As a lexicon boorish and profane.
Responses to our wired census came
Stories themed elementally did reign.
Forsooth one author wrote a fishy tale
Of spawning love with salmon swimming near,
Others, of passion on the hiking trail.
With thund'rous water Thor did oft appear
To protect the amorous embraces
Of those aroused by natural places.
(By Lady Seagraves)

Sonnet no.2
“Predilections of the Nation”

But soft, what society in yonder
Query renders their remarks so honest?
'Twas equal gander and goose responder,
Aged a score or two, they most oft promised.
Their wild fantasies did run the gamut
Of Aphrodite's imagination,
Study of reel lust they did not damn it.
Amid their natural acts of creation
Scores of lovers claimed to remain leafless.
Concerning trinkets and accessories,
Moste stylish were: pulse, root and tethered jess.
In solo plunder of their treasuries
Did one third claim to oft blithely engage.
Verily, such hot numbers sear this page!
(By Lady Seagraves)

Sonnet no.3
“What Many Breeds of Sundry Fantasies”

Speak, muses of thy delicious fancies.
Those both salacious and sweet in nature
Leave mortal thews in thrilling agonies.
Delicate power games arise major
with thralls and rulers craving such command;
Cruel and tender touch mix in fair measure.
Humours of blood rally a dis'prate band
Much like the entourage of Bacchus seek pleasure.
Such bodies enjoy a congregation
To elevate their libidinous sport.
Oft dreamt of with gayness and elation
Is the surmounting of a dear consort
Via the ingress of their fundament.
Stars! That mere flesh can bear such wonderment.
(By Lady Seagraves)

Sonnet no.4
“A Trio of Passions Earthly, Consecrated and Lethal”

Whence presented with quand'ry trifurcate,
Whom to fornicate, betroth or murder?
Bestowing upon three a final fate,
The consensus results in said order:
To lie with the fair Beyoncé of grand
Proportions awarded to quarters hind,
To woo and marry the Queen of England
And share always in her wealth and in kind
(Though her visage hath fallen in years late).
Miss Helen Keller, who would neither see
Nor hear her approaching perilous fate,
Left thusly a sentence of endless sleep.
So, the populace deliberated.
O! Destinies henceforth celebrated!
(By Marchioness Missy Sweetwillow)
