Country Love (my first attempt at anacreontic poetry) (NaPoWriMo 4/11/ 2014)

Published April 11, 2014 by kdorholt

*While looking at examples of anacreontic poetry, I noticed some were composed in quatrains of two couplets with the last line repeated as the first line in the following stanza. I followed that form.)

Country Lovers

Bright green bottle full of wine,
amber hued from gods divine,
Do your trick and have your way.
For love’s sake and mine, I say!

For love’s sake and mine, I say.
You will color sweet our day.
Bring us bliss of rare delight.
Long we love into the night!

Long we love into the night,
Caring not if wrong or right.
Swooning in our lovers’ bliss,
As we tumble kiss to kiss!

As we tumble kiss to kiss,
All the world we shall dismiss.
Lost in jumble, free of will,
Down some grassy country hill!

Down some grassy country hill,
To some stack where hay dos’t spill.
We will feel angels have sung,
Though we land in fresh cow dung!
