So many lines on Love we scribes engrain;
what new is there to say upon the theme,
when fleeting Loves are rarely what they seem,
and poets tribute them in soft refrain?
Yet morning's dawn does hazard to explain
the truth of this Stray Promise we esteem;
when daylight breaks and shuffles loose the dream,
reality asserts it rightwise reign.
It's not this doting adolescent lust
that weaves its way through many writer's verse,
and finds its spring in reckless earthly vice.
It rather is a sightless yearning trust
that comforts these two hearts through all the worse
in tacit tones unspoken, deeply wise.
