Ecstasy Poem by Sarojini Naidu

Ecstasy

Rating: 3.3


Cover mine eyes, O my Love!
Mine eyes that are weary of bliss
As of light that is poignant and strong
O silence my lips with a kiss,
My lips that are weary of song!
Shelter my soul, O my love!
My soul is bent low with the pain
And the burden of love, like the grace
Of a flower that is smitten with rain:
O shelter my soul from thy face!

Love can be a burden and a pain. Only those who have experienced true love can write this way
