Truth adjourn your Boon
Without Day.

After a long separation

I am putting a hurried love letter
In a red mailbox.

Built of but just a syllable
The hugest hearts that break.

 Hope it was that tutored me,
And Love that taught me more;
And now I learn at Sorrow's knee
The self-same lore.

Spring

 Spring am I, too soft of heart
Much to speak ere I depart:
Ask the Summer-tide to prove
The abundance of my love.


by Emily Dickinson

That Love is all there is

 That Love is all there is,
Is all we know of Love;
It is enough, the freight should be
Proportioned to the groove.
