Your errotic poetry for the day.

Ovid (43bc - ad 18)
(translated by Christopher Marlowe)

In Summer's Heat

In summer's heat and mid-time of the day,
To rest my limbs upon a bed I lay,
One window shut, the other open stood,
Which gave such light as twinkles in a wood
Like twilight glimpse at setting of the sun,
Or night being past and yet not day begun.
Such light to shamefaced maidens must be shown,
Where they may sport, and seem to be unknown.
Then came Corinna in a long, loose gown,
Her white neck hid with tresses hanging down,
Resembling fair Semiramis going to bed,
Or Lais of a thousand wooers sped.
I snatched her gown, being thin the harm was small,
Yet strived she to be covered therewithal,
And, striving thus as one that would be chaste,
Betrayed herself, and yielded at the last.
Stark naked as she stood before mine eye,
Not one wen in her body could I spy.
What arms and shoulders did I touch and see?
How apt her breasts were to be pressed by me?
How smooth a belly under her waist saw I?
How large a leg, and what a lusty thigh?
To leave the rest, all liked me passing well;
I clinged her naked body, down she fell.
Judge you the rest. Being tired, she bade me kiss.
Jove send me more such afternoons as this.


Yes, I am posting anchient erotic poetry.. you should see some of the BC porn I have..
Actually I like the Classics, I read Homer in teh Greek for god's sake.
(Snooty phase I was in.. )
But I do like Classical adn Anchient love poetry.. so I guess I am still a bit of a snoot.
I really like to read from anchinet sex poetry while my lover gives me head.. then end it with a rousing round of doggy style.. so you see you can be a snoot and still be an animal in the bedroom..
anyone care to share a little Kama Sutra with me?
