My Heart Shall Merry Still - Poem by Robinson Jonathan Dare

In my heart the horse will never stumble

Merry, I say merry mx heart

Your days are free from the dart

Because my mistress has been humble


Thy maker is unquestionable for making you adorable

Honey is your kiss and never will be of Judas Iscariot

Oh my mistress, consumation will forever merry my heart

Even after the Saviour had come for His beloved from His mantle



Then his crucifix dangles as he tosses recklessly in his white robe

Jah, jah, jah he is the left man!

My mistress concedes


Is my love not greater than spiritual revelation?

My loving heart is murdered and, silently, my funeral beckons with a heart sob

Will I not continue loving you among the spirits?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is suppose to be a patrachian sonnet - consisting of fourteen lines broken down into two stanzas of eight and six lines respectively.

The poem paints a lover who so much loves his mistress. He goes ahead to bring out some of the adorable virtues and physical attributes of his mistress. He patiently waits to take her to the altar someday.

In the second stanza however, a 'prophet' comes to say that the personae (the poet) is the left man (not the right husband) for her to marry. His mistress believes all the 'prophet' says and ditched her lover.

The poet is heartbroken, but, for the passionate love he has for his mistress, he promises to continue loving her, even if both of them don't marry each other and moreso when both of them exit this earth.

I ask: Which is greater, PROPHECY or LOVE?
