George Gordon Byron (22 January 1788 – 19 April 1824 / London, England)
On Being Asked What Was The 'Origin Of Love'
The 'Origin of Love!'--Ah why
That cruel question ask of me,
When thou may'st read in many an eye
He starts to life on seeing thee?
And should'st thou seek his end to know:
My heart forebodes, my fears foresee
He'll linger long in silent woe;
But live--until I cease to be.
