As Beauty Calls

As beauty calls you will not be remiss

Because you are a modest man, your norm.

Can't be ignored, the spell that love will form,

Deny no tender amorous first kiss.

Enough of being circumspect and shy.

Forget that you have always been the last.

Go for the gold, leave all that in the past.

Have all your joy, don't let it pass you by.

It's now or never, this must be the one,

Just as you always dreamt of in your sleep.

Keep faith that true love is the prize you'll reap.

Leave doubt behind you, know what you have won. 

May this be all you wanted and the best. 

No longer envy others in their luck 

Once you accept the treasure you have struck. 

Perhaps your faith may be put to the test, 

Quick action will be how you win her heart,

Responding as a lover always can

Since time began and woman first met man.

Thus ever more her soul will be a part, 

Until the end of time, of your one life. 

Vast universal truth is what you've found.

While gently loving, insight's come around. 

Xanthippe was a cause of married strife,

Yet Socrates was there 'til life was done.

Zen Koans you now solve, enlightened one!
