...To Young Love


Your love is like a little child
Impish, prankish
My world is too fragile
It can’t sustain any brandish

Your childlike prances
Winsome words
Pleasant stances
Of a carefree nerd

Step with care
Lest you should break
Custom’s freaky, flimsy layer
And put the mores at stake

Love is sweet as honey
But dear are the faiths
Set by elders and family
That let us live in grace

The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
