Maiden Pools HikeTrail To Maiden Pools — Panorama by kenne

Chaste goddess, well indeed thou knowest that I

Desire to be a virgin all my life,

Nor ever wish to be man’s love or wife.

I am, thou know’st, yet of thy company,

A virgin, who loves the hunt and venery,

And to go rambling in the greenwood wild,

And not to be a wife and be with child.

— From The Canterbury Tales

Ode To My Store Window Goddess

It was love at first sight,

Never just a mannequin

In a store window —

She inspired visions 

Of the Greek goddess,

Aphrodite

Standing there

Where silence reigns — 

In her silence

I was touched

By her beauty.

I could feel

Her love,

Capturing all 

Eden’s lust

From my heart —

Now imprisoned

In my store window

goddess.

. . . she speaks to me in my solitude.
