Forsake me not, for I would pine 
and waste, like tendrils on the vine 
that shrivel when the rains abscond 
and nullify our special bond. 

For Eglantine shall flourish not 
when kept in shade, stilled in the pod, 
nor will our love, without the spark 
of nature, and the love of God. 

Remain here, nestled in my care, 
and feel the measure of His power, 
with nourishment for heart and soul, 
as the elements sustain the flower.

    nor will our love, without the spark of nature, and the love of God. And so it goes, dear Keith, the beauty of the word and idea. Those are your words and ideas of which I speak. I bask in your Eglantine (google woogle) and remain smitten by the romance. love you, Kathy
