Love's Sweet As It's Bitter


Love's sweet as it's bitter in crown of jewel
This spiky passion of its torrent cosmos
Each corona of sorrow and darling rule
That conquers my soul in each its otiose
Oh fire of love I adore each your way
In the morning of the heart's many truth
You bring to the night the leaves of the day
And your cool leaf is a chalice of youth

The moments are here because of your heart
In longitudes of ways its wine is filled
Declaring the sun in the desire it'll start
But like a shattery mirror it's tilled
Oh how your beauty is like a smoke that goes
On to the air with its fervor - and its glows
