Pains of the moon
Take praying hands
And hallmark soothing
Sympathy for a moonstruck
Mars in 1474 he runs
For fun behind the
Frock of the smiling

To shy to say hello
To the beautiful one
Who has the heir
Of sfumato and
The beautitudes
Of one who wears
A halo

Think she would love
A symposium with lots
Of red wine and doves
Painted on gold

I'm a romantic poet
With a few cups
Under my belt
I could could enchant
Her into my bed

With verses that
Could charm a pit
Viper to spit his
Poisonous venom
Directly at the
Pole star

Or would I be
Gambling with dice
With death for I
Heard the wench
Was wed to a
Obscure wrench
Of Florence

But let reign be not
A withering bravado
My beating heart
Hides behind thee
Like a brain

Please give me strength sun
You need not strength
You need courage my son
Now win her over
With honesty your

The toss of the die
Is worth taking
For deep in her eyes
Her beauty is never

The Ginevra d' Benci
As lovely as Mona Lisa
With a debonair
And mystifying
Melancholy stare
Igniting care flares
To light nimble fingers
