LOVE POEMS: 5, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Deep are the wounds which strike a virtuous name
Last Line: Whose darts, wounds, flames, and frowns, meet all in me.

DEEP are the wounds which strike a virtuous name,
Sharp are the darts Revenge still sets on wing:
Consuming Jealousy's abhorred flame!
Deadly the frowns of an enraged king.
Yet all these to Disdain's heart-searching string,Deep, sharp, consuming,
deadly, nothing be,
Whose darts, wounds, flames, and frowns, meet all in me.
