First Line: For years I have used the happiness
Last Line: And this love, though not young, cannot speak.
Subject(s): Love


For years I have used the happiness
Of our love to cover me well at night
And poised it during days to cool my eyes.
In rains it is silk drawn snugly tight
Over bowed ribs of steel to shelter me
From drops of ennui that pierce the mains
Of my life. Like phosphorus aflame on water
Is our love that quickens our pulsing veins
By the touch alone of finger-tip or cheek;
And this love, though not young, cannot speak.
