Love Is So Sweet

Dublin Core

Title

Love Is So Sweet

Description

If in the shadows I should linger long. -
If I should faint and stumble by the way,
And all the light should vanish from the day,
Forgetting not that I had done you wrong,
Remembering only love's all-conquering sway,
Would you, sweet one, to my fond suit say nay?
Would you sustain me with your love and song?
Love is so sweet! Without its soothing power, -
Without we know that one is constant, true,
True in the saddest and the gladdest hour,
One constant still, when constant are so few, -

The stoutest heart will bend before the storm,

And prostrate He, a wrecked and blasted form.
