Not that I'm an incurable romantic (but)

Postby drexl1234 » 10 May 2009, 11:09

HOW could I love you more?
I would give up
Even that beauty I have loved too well
That I might love you better.
Alas, how poor the gifts that lovers give
I can but give you of my flesh and strength,
I can but give you these few passing days
And passionate words that, since our speech began,
All lovers whisper in all ladies' ears.

I try to think of some one lovely gift
No lover yet in all the world has found;
I think: If the cold sombre gods
Were hot with love as I am
Could they not endow you with a star
And fix bright youth for ever in your limbs?
Could they not give you all things that I lack?

You should have loved a god; I am but dust.
Yet no god loves as loves this poor frail dust.


That's the one that won my Lady for me :love6:
All the Best Dave and family.

There was two of us chasing the same Lady.
So I had to try my "cock a doodle do bit"
a faint heart etc.

I printed it out like the photo on an A3 sheet, then laminated it, Folded it into a cone shape and sellotaped it so it stayed as a cone. Then put a dozen minature red roses in the cone surrounded by hand made chocolates. I Memorised the poem and when I presented her with my gift, I read the poem to her. (oh dear I'm filling up now). and asked her to be my Lady.
Ahh memories, If only I'd known what I let myself in for. lol (only joking,I love her really).
