Glittering Tears--Shining Stars

I beseech thee;
Couldst roses fade with such haste
on desolate cheeks now pale?
Why dost thou carry a tempest
in thine sodden jewels glistening
with sorrow's hollow hold all alone?

Bequeath thy glittering streams
to glorious luminaries tarrying above,
let those tears ride wind gusts and adorn the sky.
Moonlight conceal'd means naught
for whilst the silver bow succumbs
to feathery wisps of collied dread
pulsing diamonds studded on night's dark velvet
shall still shine brightly on thee,
with chaste beams ready to appease.

For aught that I could ever read
or even hear by previous story,
it seems life and love holds obstacles evermore
but they becomest transparent
in the presence of effervescent stars.

Wilt thou durst heed to the wise words
received by thine ears and find needed peace?

Take the hand of a soaked palm
that hath been dampened to its now salty creases
by caressing thy barren face betwixt two rivers.

I prithee; stray from saying nay
to arms agape and unwavering.

So well done.
Talented thou art,
and no mouth honour this be,
but that as all hast been held prithee
to the truth o' thine words,
and none shalt fain false,
that emotion lie fallow in this fecund verse.
