Raven-haired lover, so dear and so warm,
cling to me tightly - unfurl all your charm.
Darkling, yet radiant - wild, gentle, serene -
Beneath all your cover - a mystery unseen.
Fantastic, delightful, emotional creature -
Love's "vessel of bon-bons", a quadruple feature.
Shy and retiring - wild as March gusts.
Playful, deceitful - harbinger of trust.
Deceiver of minions - not used to her ways,
my senses arousing as coyly she plays -
upon my emotions - a lightning-hot glance...
thrills and enthralls me - I haven't a chance.
Beckoning, spurning - just one step ahead.
A hunt run too swiftly - prey, skillfully led.
Turning, retraceing - triumphant when caught
Proud and submissive - a purchase well-bought!
