! ! Love Sight Unseen (Sonnet 33)


Can lovers blind to their beloved’s face
With eyes that cannot see still love as deep
As those with eyes that see the human race
Yet close them when they love, as if asleep?

Can lovers blind love those they’ve never seen
But voices heard and other senses known
Yet feel in darkness as in light, serene,
That passion in their blindness love had grown?

Can lovers blind still see what those with sight
Too blind to see within their lover’s heart
Refuse to see, that love in dark or light
Cannot hold lovers true to love apart?

Blind lovers love more so than lovers do
Who swear seen blindly that their love is true.

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
