What say of love fair fostered on a smile,
That force to bind the twain upon first sight?
Why should dear Cupid choose to so beguile
Sweet innocents in such an amorous plight?
What creed shall baptize with a simple kiss
There forging bonds invisible to eyes,
While every mortal flaw to there dismiss,
Yet virtues small to every ear apprise?
Love is perhaps life’s greatest single power—
The triumph best of heart and soul combined
With all eternity constrained to hours,
All truth enshrined by love’s embrace to find.
Most life is dreaming, hope on hope to try,
True love’s the meaning found in every sigh.
