The Vertical Growth Of Man’s Love


Man’s love for woman witnesses
A vertical growth from inception
Of his desire and pursuits
And stops growing further higher
When he has impregnated her.
It is like the growth of one’s bone,
Which ceases with its adulthood.
Love and bone do not grow further.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
