A thousand poems he’s written
 
Just to pledge his love undying
 
Sadly, she’s still distant and uncaring
 
And his verses are unread and forgotten
 
First time he saw her, he’s been bitten
 
By a love bug, aye! there’s no denying!
 
Ever hopeful, he’ll likely keep on writing
 
For maybe her heart somehow will soften!
 
Alas, the faint of heart ne’er will be
 
A fair match for the goddess Aphrodite!

At least there's Mona Lisa. But nobody can tell what she's up to with her enigmatic smile so we end up just singing to her. Like they say with goddess-like beautiful women - "In your dream."
Like. Thanks Brod. I'll see to it my poetry is one short of a K.
