How Do I Love Thee Challenge

As We Feel

5. Thrilled/ Charmed

From Theodwyn to Eomund

Impetuous, fearless, rash and brave
My warrior-lord is all, and more:
The marshall, Eomund, is his name.

Methinks I saw the sun ablaze
Prodigious sight, such wonderment!
Impetuous, fearless, rash and brave

I saw him riding, when he came.
Crossing through fields of green and grey
The marshall, Eomund, is his name.

In war’s prowess his skill and strength
Surpass the tales that bards can tell:
Impetuous fearless, rash and brave;

Yet also tender, loving, deft.
He showers me with sweet caress,
The marshall, Eomund, is his name.

His clear eye lingers ere it sways
In playful teasing, love’s delay,
Impetuous, fearless, rash and brave,
The marshall, Eomund, is his name.

From Eomund to Theodwyn

So sleeps the lady of the golden hair
Whose laughter fills me with warmth and delight
Of all the maidens 'tis she the most fair
her clear bright eyes have conquered all my might

A warrior's life leading since days of youth,
To duty bound where I would not refuse
But soft white hands have anchored soaring will
And down her sultry seas I'm sailing still.

With wand'ring, teasing gaze and brushing fingers
Skin prickles due to joy's yet unexperienced,
Intense her questing lips that slowly lingered
Embracing my desire, our breaths did mingle.

At last, and helplessly lost to her charm,
I will allow her to tame my wild heart.
