Reinvented Life [A Villanelle]


My life was by you reinvented
I believe this with awed feeling
When I smell how sweetly you are scented

You are my love, I am fully contented
My heart is undoubtful; my soul convincing
My life was by you reinvented

The ways I had taken were wrong I noted
My life began taking a regular shaping
When I smelt how sweetly you are scented

What a shame that in my life I intended
To shut you out in pretense of not knowing
My life was by you reinvented

A damsel without which I am dead
Such beauty, such divinity, forever glowing
My life was by you reinvented
When I smelt how sweetly you are scented

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
