PROGRESSIVE LOVE, by                    
First Line: Who says that a second is not as good?
Last Line: And its present is fire divine.
Subject(s): Courtship; Love; Youth


Who says that a second is not as good?
That a third should never be had?
Let him try a fourth in an Alpine hood;
And a fifth is not half bad.

Then here's to the latest; there'll be no last,
Till Death cries "Ho, you're mine;"
Love's eternal youth has no future or past,
And its present is fire divine.
