Random Poem:


Lilly’s appointment with a cloud of steam
(each Wednesday,
though not a hard and fast rule)
would turn her tawny brows aquamarine
were it not that she dove in the plunge-pool,
and showered in dulce blackcurrant and peach.
Thirsty, he’d come to quench,
drink deeply
and quaff
of her cleanliness,
once within reach
of the drops about her Divinity
he’d lean down and,
drop by drop,
lick them off.
