I Adore Thee - Poem by John G. Nelson

I adore thy incredible smile, pretty as love itself
I compose thou a song, tune dripping from above
I fear not any casualty, my heart seal deep in love
I rest so pleased, well content, my lass I deeply love
I joy well here, in thy ardent arms, I feel no cold

I retrace the flowery days, most wondrous sphere
I gather sweet violet, this my choice and my cheer
I glitter, the light that shines, comes from thy orbs
I wish more then my heart holds, but well absorb
I beseech thou, stay with me, may thy love proceed
