The Silent Lover I

Rating: 3.3
PASSIONS are liken'd best to floods and streams:
The shallow murmur, but the deep are dumb;
So, when affection yields discourse, it seems
   The bottom is but shallow whence they come.
They that are rich in words, in words discover
That they are poor in that which makes a lover.

They that are rich in words, in words discover That they are poor in that which makes a lover. Two nice lines. Thanks for the sharing.

A verse of warning for all the silver-tongued poets hoping to seduce the fair maiden with their craftily chosen words. And the moral of the story is: Better to use your sword!
