Sigh Simply Sighs
If a drop of tear drops when he’s alone, that’s love,
And a sigh sighs and softly does bemoan, that’s love.
A lover carves his statue in beloved’s heart;
If that statue breathes in a lovely zone, that’s love.
A lover may let his heart make a sigh-tempest,
Yet if he can tame gently that cyclone, that’s love.
A dark cloud labours with vapors yet with no whines;
If she rains like a cascade with no groan, that’s love.
I saw a doe drive a deer from a grassy zone;
If he can sing, letting her own that lawn, that’s love.
Sky sobs slow at dawn when stars sing their farewell song;
If stars kindle a moonless night alone, that's love.
A teardrop grieves, bewails and moans in poet's heart;
If he breathes and makes it a poem - known, that’s love.
