Only Love May Lead Love In

From Immortal Poetry
Jump to: navigation, search

Love must kiss that mortal's eyes
Who hopes to see fair Arcady.
No gold can buy you entrance there;
But beggared Love may go all bare'
No wisdom won with weariness;
But Love goes in with Folly's dress'
No fame that wit could ever win;
But only Love may lead Love in.

by Henry Cuyler Bunner
