Hey there everyone.
I’m participating in NaPoWriMo 2020, if you aren’t following the NaPoWriMo website already then go check it out at www.napowrimo.net.
Today I have written a romantic found poem based on a sumptuous sensual poem written by Mary Darby Robinson.
You can find the lyrics to her poem here.
Read “To The Muse Of Poetry” by Mary Robinson over at poeticous
Finally, here is my own found poem, thank you for reading and good luck with all of your NaPoWriMo adventures throughout this month!

“This Precarious State” by David Ellis
Around radiant, glorious, transcendent bliss
Steal each word with lips, divine
Fate, in this precarious state
Calls from smile and burning, eager sigh
Softest charms unite, with frantic heart
Wild moon, sparkling, with rich, haunted tone
Oceans’ throat foamy, its crystal self pure, trembling
When rapture bursts, yielding poetic lustre
Prolong the thrilling song, with persuasion
Tread the paths of taste
Feel genuine fire that warms soul
