Love Too Has To Be Learnt!
We learn to listen to melody,
to detect it and distinguish it,
to isolate it and delimit it,
to exert it and tolerate it,
to be patient with its oddity and expression
as it continues to compel and enchant us relentlessly
until we have become its humble and enraptured lovers
who desire nothing better from the world
than it and only it!
Strange but true, love like music, in all its humility, has to be learned too!
While on the brink of life's native shores
the lover in breath's cold spell pours
tuneful sighs and melodious woes
of cold disdain and broken vows!
Scarcely lingering in a world of pain
his parting breath animates her name
and in murmured grief he gingerly hauls
his spirit treading the verge of downfall!
