It's her favourite. And it is a villanelle.


The baptism of desire, the fire burns away the doubt and shame.
Risen, like the phoenix, in heat and light and a solferino flame.
Passion descends on you, enters you, pure in its own right, no carnival
can drive away this mystery of the touch, avatars of the carnal
gods reborn to taste with lips and hips the eclipse of bartered ad val,
the baptism of desire, the fire burns away the doubt and shame.
I feel your tempested breath upon me, until nothing but you could tame
the lion of my loins that drives deep to fulfill an ancient aim and claim.
Passion descends on you, enters you, pure in its own right, no carnival
to bid farewell the flesh that meshes in urgent, ardent and unsubtle
stroke and writhe and kiss and rage and the poetry of the deeper thrall.
The baptism of desire, the fire burns away the doubt and shame.
I would gladly die tween the thighs that wrap and slap me, with a poet's name,
taking me for what I am, I surrender my urgent thirst and proclaim!
Passion descends on you, enters you, pure in its own right, no carnival
for I am not to surrender my couer rage for you, but in you, the same
as you will lay upon my flesh the consecration of your sacred scrawl:
The baptism of desire, the fire burns away the doubt and shame.
Passion descends on you, enters you, pure in its own right, no carnival

I have been very, very busy. Prolific to a fault. I plan on sticking around for a while. Glad you like it...but, as always, I can only claim to being the mirror or lens to the passion and the muse.
Reviewed by Sage Sweetwater 7/1/2010
Oh...I've missed you! This is more fiery than the most dramatic sky with shooting stars...you haul this from the depth of the loins and I keep expanding my conception of what the poetry of Romantic Poet of the Internet William F. DeVault means in terms of a male poet's innermost virile character. Ancient, at love's thrust striding into eternity, William...you are the actual architect of ancient, timeless romantic poetry...it's good to see you back...be well.

Love,
Sage
