A Song Of Love

Hey, rose, just born
Twin to a thorn;
Was't so with you, O Love and Scorn?

Sweet eyes that smiled,
Now wet and wild:
O Eye and Tear- mother and child.

Well: Love and Pain
Be kinfolks twain;
Yet would, Oh would I could Love again.

A great poem from a different time.
obviously Lanier had poetic skills but I think he had better skills than topic in this poem and then there is the gap in age between us
Oh eye and tear- mother and child, Sweet eyes that smiled, Now wet and wild Captivating and stunning diction. Thanks for sharing it here.
I like this poem, it's quite good
