Poemetry: Pygmalion

From the quarry, I carved and mined you;

on the marble, I drew and designed you.

To the block, I brought my chisel,

and, from the rock, I refined you.

Seeing your solemn and stony beauty,

love chipped at my heart and I pined for you.

So I sought Aphrodite’s approval

to soften the stone that defined you.

Home I came from the goddess’ shrine,

running into my house to find you.

Around your waist, my arms entwined you

and always will my arms and love bind you.
