Art And Love

by
 For many long uninterrupted years
She was the friend and confidant of Art;
They walked together, heart communed with heart
In that sweet comradeship that so endears.
Her fondest hope, her sorrows and her fears She told her mate; who would in turn impart Important truths and secrets.
But a dart, Shot by that unskilled, mischevous boy, who peers From ambush on us, struck one day in her breast, And Love sprang forth to kiss away her tears.
She thought his brow shone with a wonderous grace; But, when she turned to introduce her guest To Art, behold, she found an empty place, The goddess fled, with sad, averted face.
