Sonnet X: Yet Love, Mere Love

Rating: 2.9

Yet, love, mere love, is beautiful indeed
And worthy of acceptation. Fire is bright,
Let temple burn, or flax; an equal light
Leaps in the flame from cedar-plank or weed:
And love is fire. And when I say at need
I love thee...mark!...I love thee--in thy sight
I stand transfigured, glorified aright,
With conscience of the new rays that proceed
Out of my face toward thine. There's nothing low
In love, when love the lowest: meanest creatures

Who love God, God accepts while loving so.

And love is fire. Good sonnet with a good rhyme scheme Of Abba Abba.... A good example of the Petrarchan or Italian sonnet SylvaOnyema Uba.
