A Song Of Love - Poem by Sidney Lanier

Hey, rose, just born
Twin to a thorn;
Was't so with you, O Love and Scorn?

Sweet eyes that smiled,
Now wet and wild:
O Eye and Tear- mother and child.

Well: Love and Pain
Be kinfolks twain;
Yet would, Oh would I could Love again.

    Oh eye and tear- mother and child,
    Sweet eyes that smiled, Now wet and wild
    Captivating and stunning diction. Thanks for sharing it here.
