THE CLINGING VINE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A vine o'er me, a withered plane, hath grown
Last Line: Whose love around thee, e'en in death, may twine.
Alternate Author Name(s): Antipatros Of Sidon
Subject(s): Love


A vine o'er me, a withered plane, hath grown,
And shrouds my limbs with foliage not their own,
Grateful—because my boughs, once verdant, trained
Her tender shoots, her clustering grapes sustained.
So choose, fond boy, a partner like the vine,
Whose love around thee, e'en in death, may twine.
