Beauty, Time, And Love

Rating: 3.0
I
FAIR is my Love and cruel as she 's fair;
Her brow-shades frown, although her eyes are sunny.
Her smiles are lightning, though her pride despair,
And her disdains are gall, her favours honey:
A modest maid, deck'd with a blush of honour,
Whose feet do tread green paths of youth and love;
The wonder of all eyes that look upon her,
Sacred on earth, design'd a Saint above.
Chastity and Beauty, which were deadly foes,
Live reconciled friends within her brow;

My spotless love hovers with purest wings, About the temple of the proudest frame, Where blaze those lights, fairest of earthly things, declaration of love wonderfully penned. tony

Wow! This protagonist knows which side is up trying to win a heart and lose with grace even as pierced by rejection. Undying love and true. ??????

'Beauty, sweet Love, is like the morning dew, Whose short refresh upon the tender green Cheers for a time, but till the sun doth show, And straight 'tis gone as it had never been.'.....So beauty is short lived! 'When yet th' unborn shall say, Lo, where she lies! Whose beauty made him speak, that else was dumb! These are the arcs, the trophies I erect, That fortify thy name against old age'..........But the poet has immortalised it! Beautifully stated!

Remarkable that the last couplet of each sonnet summed up the feelings. Great writing.
