VARIATION ON RONSARD: 1, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: The grace of the moon is
Last Line: More embraceth than space.
Alternate Author Name(s): Moore, T. Sturge
Subject(s): Ronsard, Pierre De (1524-1585)

THE grace of the moon is
Born monthly, my dear,
If our light the less soon is
Put out, re-appear
Will it never
Nor ever
In thin crescence peep
To dispel the long sleep.

Then, while we are living,
Tease not but kiss;
A thousand times giving
Renewal of bliss:
Neither measured
Nor treasured
Can love be, whose grace
More embraceth than space.
