Here Lies The Death of Love...


For, in Love we will realize-
The glare of truth within the eyes,
Can not be masqued by ornate lies,
Can not take hold its ivory ties,
Can not sleep with the lambs forsooth-
Nor settle for inane half-truths.
And, bereft of passions quantum sum,
Love must fade like distant drums.
Love must play its Death anthem.

What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
