i do not demand much
that you give me so much
love,
i have lots of love to give

i am love myself
overflowing
and if i love you
and tell you so
that i love you
i do not demand much

i am in love with you
and i do the loving
because in truth
it is the loving that
is the giving and
it is not the taking
that matters to
the one who truly
loves to the one
who loves to love
being loved is not
really that important

when i love
i give
i do not take

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
