I do not love in moderation

October 14, 2017

I do not love in moderation;

I give with all my wretched heart--

it yearns and starves in cold stagnation

and lights the fire of summer star


I know not fraction in my ardor,

my heart is far too well in verse

and knows the limits of my fervor

when fervor in itself is curse


I cannot give my heart in pieces,

yet that is how it comes returned;

I do not love in moderation,

my lesson is one never learned.
