Sonnet 29 - Poem by doug bentley

Consumed in love the shaft of desire
and lust for all takes charge of heart,
as love's dart, Raphael's arrow of fire
golden tip dips, silver in soul to part

from gold. so store that star supernal
that shines round you, and shines round
you in glory. what golden gift to burial
by faithless self will two souls confound?

marriage is a commerce of heart, and
there desire stakes its claim; the audit
of affections this truth, in withstand
of all contrary sum, will clearly admit.

economy of love, by desires tested
in fire's alchemy, is affections tutored.
