Sweet Paramour

I see the edge of your smile
and the tip of your varnished toe,
the waterfall of your flaxen hair
that makes your shadow grow:
Love!  I am the one, who loves 
you as the day.
To lose you makes me shudder
like a mast on a blustered  day;
Keel-haul and whip my hopeless love
Send my soul to hell
But let me call before I die,
Love! I am the one.

This has a type of classic feel to it, Peter. I really liked the imagery of the waterfall of flaxen hair and the shuddering like a mast on a blustered day! Congrats in my contest.
