Love have your way


Would you love less?
If my eyes are not blue
My lips are not fuller I guess
Like the moon’s silvery hue!

Would you love me less?
If my nose is not roman
My eyebrows not lush like the Amazon forest dress
Instead I’m secluded a quite canopy not a showman

Would you love me less?
If my shoulders are not wide
Like ridges of the Grand Canyon excess
My hips flat not round from side to side

Would you love me less?
As you dwell not on my soul, but my body
Where as the light and heart of my soul caress
Yours: Your footprints from soul to sole I embody

Would you love me less?
Where my eyes only see you in my heart’s mirror
Clear and bright as the midday summer Sun true nobless
Essence of the sunflowers fullness, hope never clearer

Would you love me less?
As I lay my life at life’s edge
My soul eternalized on a marble slab as I confess
Openly by the living word my love’s pledge

Cry not for me, I openly to love did galdly undress
Love layered my heart beyond my understanding
Love in me to the world surrendered and did confess
To the heart of heaven: Its throne my final landing!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
