So We'll Go No More a-Roving

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
And the soul outwears the breast,
And the heart must pause to breathe,
And love itself have rest.

Though the night was made for loving,
And the day returns too soon,
Yet we'll go no more a-roving
By the light of the moon.

    for the sword outwear it sheath, it is too disturbing

  • Karen Sinclair (8/23/2012 6:23:00 PM)

    I think this poem has great merit, it sounds beautiful read aloud and suggests such woeful moments, no longer willing or able to enjoy the part of life the poet obviously relished. And the moon still as bright...perfect

    George Gordon Byron the original Jim Morrison, with poetry of a higher caliber. Mr Straw you have me cracking up sir!

    Playboy poet
    and he know it.

    For love read lust. For sword read penis. For soul read desire. For heart read genitalia.

  • Sm Smithfield (8/23/2011 12:45:00 PM)

    This makes more sense when you realize that Lord Byron was secretly the Batman.

  • Juan Olivarez (8/23/2011 7:02:00 AM)

    Ok Ok Daniel we get it sheesh.

  • Daniel Martin (8/23/2011 2:50:00 AM)

    Very sorrowful poem of lost love. Has glimpses of the lovers hope that the romance will resume after a 'rest', but this may just be showing our reluctance to accept what we deep down know to be true.
