A Valentine

Rating: 4.2

My songs should be as lilies fair,
And roses made of crimson light,
To lie amid the fragrant hair
And on the breast of my delight.

Such glory is for them too high;
I'll scatter them adown the street,
And when my love is passing by
They will rise up and kiss her feet.

What a lovely lovely poem! Makes me want to Re-joyce in Kilmer poetry.. [ Yes, a bad pun]. But, certainly we can be rejoicing in this valentine

The poem reminds me of a number of Hindi and English songs which reflect a similar state of a lover's heart but nothing can surpass the delicate beauty of the sentiments expressed in the poem.
