    Read twice and I‘m sure will read it again. Luve the images. Luve the poem and the emotions. Luve the poet, and the deep commitment he portrays here. Should a maiden be so lucky with such deep devotedness? How blessed is she. (Report) Reply

    Does anyone know why do many of the words in this poem contain apostrophes?

    It is because the apostrophe holds the place of another letter. (Report) Reply

    The rose may wither, so will the beloved but the love and sublimity will still beat inside the heart and maybe the soul. (Report) Reply
