Here Lies The Death of Love...


For, in Love we will realize-
The glare of truth within the eyes,
Can not be masqued by ornate lies,
Can not take hold its ivory ties,
Can not sleep with the lambs forsooth-
Nor settle for inane half-truths.
And, bereft of passions quantum sum,
Love must fade like distant drums.
Love must play its Death anthem.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
