Uriah Hamilton Poems
A Lush For Your Love
I would give up drinking
To be drunk with your perfume
On a summer night
With the sea breeze singing
A romantic lullaby,
To kiss your eyes at midnight,
For whom every aching fiber
Of my lonely being craves.
I have immense affection for poets,
Those desperate lovers who often lose
All vestiges of sanity in amorous pursuits.
Propertius lived and wrote in Rome
A few decades before the birth of Christ,
He wrote passionately
Of his tumultuous relationship with Cynthia,
Cursing ships and seas when they took her away.
