To A Harlot, Tho’ Dear

18 Feb


When all is told upon your eventide,
of beauty, yours, now served to one,
with ageless craft of virtues denied,
for you, dear harlot, deserved of sun;
when all guests of your bed chamber
have but shed reserves, now done,
may your bed, with its soft camber,
ne’er hold still love’s staid aversion.

    I like the classic style, and the flow is great, but I was a little thrown off by the softness of “aversion” as a rhyme. Would this be a slant rhyme?

      Perhaps so… I intended it in keeping with the combinations of the rhyming phrases. I suppose it could be made more direct… I shall consider that. Thank you for your praise and astute comment.
