Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms

Believe me, if all those endearing young charms,
Which I gaze on so fondly to-day,
Were to change by to-morrow, and fleet in my arms,
Live fairy-gifts fading away,

beautiful! I got a beautiful poem just like this, check it out: https: //www.poemhunter.com/poem/the-mafia-3/
A husband is telling his wife that although her beauty has been marred by smallpox, he loves her still.
Nice poem...... So nice....
A nice sentiment, but I would never refer to my wife as the dear ruin. And that line To which time will but make thee more dear needs a grammatical clean-up.
A poem about unconditional love we all live for. I know my wife feels the same about me. Too sentimental for today's taste? Well, we have a society That is on the skids, and would be much better to return to this Romantic period. We have lost so much of our humanity in this sophisticated culture. Few people experience real love.
I heard this beautiful poem sung when I was a boy of 10 and I never forgot it! Now, at 81, I still love it and will perform it for my dear wife of 78 on her birthday, just hoping to do it justice!
Please spare me the romanticizing of the Irish people; I'm sure that Ireland has its fair share of cheats, spivs, bullies and thieves as most other countries. This superb song, perhaps my current favourite, doesn't need to be dressed up with extraneous sentimentality to find itself a place in people's hearts - and their repertoires.

The kind of love we yearn for- -it is not a love dependent upon youth and its soft, unsagging skin. It is a love of the soul that is portrayed here and gives us women hope that even modern man might be intelligent enough and capable enough of such love. Of course, it goes for women too but I think most women are already capable of seeing beneath the outside appearances.
Lovely. I especially enjoyed the last lines: No, the heart that has truly loved never forgets, But as truly loves on to the close, As the sunflower turns on her god when he sets The same look which she turned when he rose! Extremely well-crafted. One of the best poems ever.
It is morning, I have just turned on my computer to begin my day, and this is how I begin it - by reading this tender poem. What a beautiful start to the morning!
Beauty and youth and No the heart that has truly loved never forgets.....great meaningful poem.
