LOVEY-LOVES, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Oh, love! Let us love with a love that loves
Last Line: Make the public most mightily tired.
Alternate Author Name(s): King, Ben
Subject(s): Boredom; Love; Ennui

OH, love! let us love with a love that loves,
Loving on with a love forever;
For a love that loves not the love it should love --
I wot such a love will sever.
But, when two loves love this lovable love,
Love loves with a love that is best;
And this love-loving, lovable, love-lasting love
Loves on in pure love's loveliness.

Oh, chide not the love when its lovey-love loves
With lovable, loving caresses;
For one feels that the lovingest love love can love,
Loves on in love's own lovelinesses.
And love, when it does love, in secret should love --
'Tis there where love most is admired;
But the two lovey-loves that don't care where they love
Make the public most mightily tired.
