The Sun Has Burst The Sky

The sun has burst the sky
Because I love you
And the river its banks.

The sea laps the great rocks
Because I love you
And takes no heed of the moon dragging it away
And saying coldly 'Constancy is not for you'.
The blackbird fills the air
Because I love you
With spring and lawns and shadows falling on lawns.

The people walk in the street and laugh
I love you
And far down the river ships sound their hooters
Crazy with joy because I love you.

Superb
Love of spring is sparking with beauty of perception of nature. Wonderful presentation is very strong as well as very soft. Sun has nice relationship with sky and sea. Both sky and sea hold reflection of sun-rays. People may walk in the street and laugh but this is true that there is love with deepness of action. Love is also power of universe. This is a stunning poem and excellently composed....10
