Love's Sweetest Philosophy

Love's Sweetest Philosophy

A Poem by Mario Vitale
"

If I should labor through daylight and dark, Consecrate, valorous, serious, true, Then on the world I may blazon my mark; And what if I don't, and what if I do?

Love's Sweetest Philosophy

If I should labor through daylight and dark,
Consecrate, valorous, serious, true,
Then on the world I may blazon my mark;
And what if I don't, and what if I do?
The fountains mingle with the river,
And the rivers with the ocean;
The winds of heaven mix forever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
All things by a law divine
In another's being mingle--
Why not I with thine?

See, the mountains kiss high heaven,
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister flower could be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea;--
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?
My stormy love for thee
dark drifting clouds of troubled torment
come crashing down
windswept hair lashes my face
water falls from crazy eyes
and blinds me to your beauty
dragged down by a heavy heart
in a sad sea of terrible tears
my conscience shivers
and finally disappears
