I shall prepare a sumptuous dinner
and offer it to you.
To start: one silver dish of oysters,
fruits of a fathomless sea,
for only you are worthy of
such riches drawn from the deep
Your seat will be covered in cloth
of deepest damask rose,
embroidered with silver lilies,
sewn and scattered with pearls
for you alone are worthy of
a chair so fine and so rare.
I shall pour wine into cut crystal glasses
that shimmer and gleam
in light from beeswax candles.
There will be lacquered bowls
of sweet-smelling petals,
for only you deserve
the favours of my table.
Your food will be fit for a god,
prepared with the touch of an angel,
ambrosial and appetizing,
spiced and seasoned with subtlest herbs ,
for you alone are worthy of
sweetmeats I can prepare.
When all the feasting is done,
you will lie on a blanket of sable
in endless, dreamless sleep
while I caress your ebony hair,
for I alone have asked
of my friend Vengeance if he too
would grace my festive table.

It would be nice to see the pearls in L10 somehow tied in with the oysters in L3. In L24, "the" should precede "subtlest" where it's a Superlative. I like the way it's written; very proper, but with enough of a modern-day slant to lend to it a refreshing and contemporary feel. :-)
