I Although Not Beautiful


I, although not beautiful,
have desired to mingle my dust
with all that is beautiful-
with rivers, streams
and the white sand of uninhabited beaches.
As I grow older
I would like to be without dislike
or suspicion-
these hurt me.
I have realised the importance of dreams
and accept the thoughts that go within myself.
The possibility of disaster is always near-
I drag my feet when I say goodbye.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
