Advice To A Poet’s Lady

Advice To A Poet’s Lady

Look not for your love in crackling fire,
nor seek him in meadows rich with flowers –
not though his poetry greatly inspire
with beautiful words enriching the hours.

His love for you is enduring and strong.
Look down if you seek for his heart’s true beat:
no fleeting thing but a passion lifelong,
like the steady ground upholding your feet.
