Often as a healing balm, soothing flesh and nature
Aging monarchs held a custom, conquering lands in yester-days
– culture then of different sort; by modern mores, unswayed
To bed a host of lissome maids, their visage pure and spotless
Strumming harps and singing songs of aching love mellifluous

No dalliance these before his throne, nor flash akin scintilla
But trophies of majestic power, warming chamber silks at night
And sweetening regal bower
A challenge poem for a contest hosted by the delightful `FuzzyHoser
Read all about it [link]
What fun! :sun:

The majority of this reads very bold and strong, and the final tercet sinks the weight of the powerful imagery into a delicate bed. A well-crafted piece. :thumbsup:
