No Rhyme, No Measure This Love I Proclaim


A haiku chained for him my hand doth write -
this hand so frail unkissed by angel’ s tongue
could form no sonnet lovelier as quite
roses that on his cheeks lie, his cheeks wrung
quatrains to be put to test, I did taste
on fine romance a drama on its own;
the taste of love on brevity they waste.
In these, my poetry versed their way home.
In these, no anthology was e ’er known
that sleepeth in my fingers with his name -
for his name covets them in all their thrones,
no rhyme, no measure this love I proclaim.
...in haiku chained for him by angel’ s tongue
...my hand doth write sonnet, a lovely song.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

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;
