LOVE OF RAREST VINTAGE

It was a perfect
Love, that had no beginning
And therefore, no end.

It was a divine
Love, which never had the least
Need, to be sorry.

It was a happy
Love, which did not ask to be
Known, by the other.

It was of itself
Pure, a wonderful story
Of a life's longing.

Something out-of-reach
Far beyond the everyday
Full of its own speech.

It spent lingering
Hours, gazing at an image
Full of wise wisdom.

It passed half a life
Walking with the other, down
Perfumed country lanes.

Only in the night's
Dream, did it dare eat a peach
Of rarest vintage !
