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!
In My Songs!
I sing of love in so sweet a strain
that hearts most unyielding soften by the refrain
and the blushing girls who readily subscribe
feel their souls tingle with a delightful vibe.
Quaintly do my haunted songs explain
those little secret that in love proliferate-
not the hardihood at length which conquest coronate,
or the slow consent to feigned anger to coy disdain ornate,
