An Ingres Back

entry picture

She has an Ingres back

She is a violin

And when she’s in his arms

She sweetly plays for him


She doesn’t know the words

He doesn’t know the tune

There’s a duet of sorts

In that sweet dark bedroom


His fingerwork is good

Her mouth is soft and warm

While she is in his arms

They will not come to harm


Her voice is like a lute

And yet he hardly hears

When she tells him of love

He always disappears ;)

Hi Ann.I've been neglecting you lately.
lovely poem, Jean August would need to work on bigger canvases these days.

Nice poem, Ann. You've no need to repeat "sweet" though and fingerwork is fine sounds snappier.

Why don't you tag it with WOL Comp for Anthony's thing? It has a light hearted touch to it and there isn't an I to be seen...

I think we should challenge ourselves to write an objective poem about our own sex - it would be interesting to see what we think of each other.

O.H. M.Y. this the objectification of women I see?

Lovely poem. Beautifully read Ann. Yes - there are cads everywhere you turn - even in Cornwall it seems!

I like the rhyme and the way it seems to so effortlessly flow.

Liked this, Ann, its confident rhythm. And it's the first poem I've seen that ends with an emoticon :-))
