OH, TORTURE NOT MY SOUL!, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Oh, do not torture thus my soul
Last Line: T is dreaming now of thee.
Subject(s): Love


OH, do not torture thus my soul,
Because, so calm and still,
Even beneath thy sunlike kiss
It opes not at thy will.

For love is a peculiar thing,
Oft unawares may come;
Who seeks it on far mountain peaks
May find it 'neath sea foam.

Oh, do not torture thus my soul,
To blossom leave it free;
Perchance, beneath the flood of rain,
'T is dreaming now of thee.
