The syllable count is 8 per line in iambic tetrameter and the rhyme scheme is aaaabb ccccdd eeeeff and so on. “La” is Laura Lamarca’s signature and “Charta” in Latin, simply means “poem”.


By the shade of the old oak tree
There’s no one else there, just empty
The gentleness of her body
Makes him admire her, full of glee
With echoes of birds, twittering
Cricket chirping and wind blowing

He and she mirror each other
While they kiss with certain ardour
Bent on partaking each other
They’d like to stay there as they were
Her aroma ensnaring him
Filling his desire to the brim

The masculinity in him
Could be like singing in a hymn
Love, passion and its synonym
Feeling the love with all its brim
Happy and crowning with passion
When two bodies becoming one
