Treasure Island

A Picture Of You

I took a picture of you with my eyes 
Which I would've given to you as a surprise.
To the photo-lab of my head it went. 
There it was processed and sent 
To my brains where it was framed 
Waiting for it to be claimed. 
Alas! My heart; that stubborn thief
Put me in a state of disbelief 
When he stole that beauteous piece
And locked it in his bosom with love's keys,
And dumped the keys into admiration's sea. 
Ah, dear me!
Your picture is now locked in my love.

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?
