Eglantine

Forsake me not, for I should pine and waste, like tendrils on the vine that shrivel when the rains abscond and nullify our common bond. For eglantine shall flourish not when kept in shade, stilled in the pod, as would our love without the spark of nature, and the love of God. So stay forever, do not fear that I would ramble errantly, for I shall nourish and protect thee throughout all eternity.

Lovely poetry, Keith. It's nice to read something that makes sense in the Soup every now and then. It's far too scarce lately.
