Summary: A sensual poem written for a lover

Taking Of A Pearl

Her secret hiding-place no one goes, but he,
Far down below, her deep dark sea.
A homely haven, where warm delight resides
There her fine fellow, from time to time may hide.
To escape from himself, he finds her soul;
Together they may reach their satisfying goal.
Her nether shelled world becomes his oyster
Where for her pleasure, forever he may loiter.
In that place, he finds, the precious in her
And covets, and treasures it like a true lover.
For she keeps it secret, and hidden away,
The pearl of her beautiful, sensual way.
