National poetry day 2014

Those things that poets said

 

Those things that poets said

Of love seemed true to me

When I loved and I fed

On love and poetry equally.

 

But now I wish I knew

If theirs were love indeed,

Or if mine were the true

And theirs some other lovely weed:

 

For certainly not thus,

Then or thereafter, I

Loved ever. Between us

Decide, good Love, before I die.

 

Only that once I loved

By this one argument

Is very plainly proved:

I loving not am different.

About loveandgarbage

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.
