let us dare
sweet lust’s advance
to intertwine
in love’s enhance

I burn to offer
love’s special kiss
to fire your soul
in passion’s bliss

to enfold you deep
in nocturne’s hour
to taste the nectar
of your tender flower

you are the dream
that I adore
my one desire
to love you more

    You had us at /taste the
    nectar/–this one really
    stands out from a lot of
    your other poems; old
    fashioned, formal, and
    as sweet as drippings
    from a honey pot.
