Life Of My Life, You Seem To Me Poem by Torquato Tasso

Life Of My Life, You Seem To Me

Rating: 3.0


Life of my life, you seem to me
Like some pallid olive tree
Or the faded rose I see:
Nor do you lack beauty,
But pleasing in every way to me,
In shyness or in flattery,
Whether you follow me or flee,
Consume, destroy me softly.

Lovely poem. An emotion such as love can be so elusive. With all its doubts and assurances it has power to build or destroy one at any time of life. Have mercy O love! Destroy me softly!
