Reluctant, Reticent Lady
By La Belle Rouge

A Sensual Sonnet

My Lord, you cannot possibly require
Lady’s concession to passion base
Nor yet aspire to cultivate and inspire
Her romantic urges with such poor taste
Oh no, not one kiss shalt thou gather
Not one lace shall become thy spoil
To lay with you? Why, I’d surely rather
Be a peasant and in foul fields to toil
I shall not gift so much as simple smile
To proud rogue convinced he can bed me
I’ve not been a naive ingénue in a while
If a man would bed me, he must wed me
Sir. I think you to be most impertinent
And quite overbearing in licentious intent

My Lord, my cloak has disappeared
And the satin slippers from my feet
Resolve greatly weakened as I feared
By kisses on bare shoulders so sweet
My pillaged corset captive fallen now
To the prowess of such persuasion bold
And methinks I lack all knowledge of how
To deny such heat in iced Winter’s cold
Thy lips are those of a conqueror true
Sizeable sword cast to fill up a sheath
The Lady blissfully surrenders to you
As with pleasure she weeps beneath
For alas, I am both undressed, undone
Constrained to admit, thou art the one

Belle, two sonnets and done with much technical expertise my friend. "Sizable sword cast to fill up a sheath", "As with pleasure she weeps beneath". There we have it. No trifling about it was a done deed. These will make fine work to return to and read many times over. May peace love and joy be with you. Jon Michael

Loved it. The soul sometimes speaks on the page, and this does.

Oh my, this certainly speaks of a very smooth gentleman's persuit of his lady and conquest of the buried treasure...Love this belle, lovely work as always.
Peace, love and light,

WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Liana Margiva

an excellent sonnet fills the page indeed ...
Reviewed by John Flanagan
This has everything, Belle: the difficult to achieve technical mastery of sonnet form - and two sonnets, no less - and the flow (minimal punctuation throughout) and elegance of language, the wickedly sensual rejection followed by the 'fall' "...pillaged corset" n all; a delight to read and savour.

I just love old English poetry. And with you writing it Dear Lady is a double bonus for me. Reading you makes me feel so much better.

So did she finally change her mind?
Reviewed by David Maclellan
Excellent Belle! Methinks this is Shakespearian in beauty, and such sensual analogies!

Methings the King failed to buy her a pick proof chastity belt but all is well that ends well...mayhap she will still be married by the gallant knight of old.
