Eternal Love


I love you when you are near.
As seaman love the morning clear.

I love you still when your far away.
As a potter loves the supple clay.

I love you blindly without regret.
Like a sweet sonata in a loving duet.

I love you more than I have shown.
In selfish ways I now condone.

I love you best when nights are scented.
With pillows damp and souls contented.

I love you lavish,
Like a poet loves his quill.

And when you say you tire of me,
I know I'll love you still.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
