Poems I love...

My True Love Hath My Heart, And I Have His


My true-love hath my heart, and I have his,
By just exchange, one for the other giv'n.
I hold his dear, and mine he cannot miss;
There never was a better bargain driv'n.
His heart in me keeps me and him in one,
My heart in him his thoughts and senses guides;
He loves my heart, for once it was his own;
I cherish his, because in me it bides.
His heart his wound received from my sight:
My heart was wounded with his wounded heart;
For as from me, on him his hurt did light,
So still me thought in me his hurt did smart:
Both equal hurt, in this change sought our bliss:
My true love hath my heart and I have his.

Sir Philip Sidney

When first we met we did not guess

When first we met, we did not guess     That Love would prove so hard a master; Of more than common friendliness When first we met we did not guess. Who could foretell the sore distress,     This irretrievable disaster, When first we met? -- We did not guess     That Love would prove so hard a master.

The Beauty Of A Woman

Author: Ardem

The beauty of a woman Is not in the clothes she wears, The figure that she carries, Or the way she combs her hair.   The beauty of a woman Must be seen from her eyes, Because that is the doorway to her heart, The place where love resides.  The beauty of a woman Is not a facial mole, But true beauty in a woman Is reflected in her soul.  It is the caring she lovingly gives, The Passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman with passing years -- only grows and grows.
