Youth And Love

Poem By Amy Levy

What does youth know of love?

He plucks the myrtle for his brow,
For his forehead the rose.
Nay, but of love
It is not youth who knows.

The dust in his throat, the worm in his eyes,
The mould in his mouth, the turf on his breast;
This is the end of him, this is best.
