Far Too Long (Villanelle)


Although I had been hurt severely by love,
far too long I had been searching for you.
Far too long through this world I did rove,

but never did I want to remove
even a single moment even if we did argue.
Although I had been hurt severely by love,

now our love, our commitment does prove
its own value even if painful things you do.
Far too long through this world I did rove,

even if I sometimes do disapprove
still together we do continue.
although I had been hurt severely by love,

you do remain the one, who fits my life like a glove,
with whom happiness I want to pursue.
Far too long through this world I did rove,

before together we did move
and when I met you all of my wildest dreams came true,
although I had been hurt severely by love;
far too long through this world I did rove…

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
