2008 Ancient Near Eastern Valentine Contest Winners

The above creative pesudo-Egyptian love poem comes from the minds of Sophie Harvey and Olivier Holmey, undergrads in Egyptology at Oxford. They took first place in Eisenbrauns' Valentine's Day contest. Here a few lines from the poem:

I taste your lips and they are like a soft breeze.

I smell your perfume.

You are a goddess to me.

I was blind but with you I see.

I will take away your clothes

Because we wish to make love.

Be sure to read the rest of the poem, and view the other entries, at the Eisenbrauns site (click here).
