THE WAY THAT LOVERS USE

The way that lovers use is this;
 They bow, catch hands, with never a word,
And their lips meet, and they do kiss,
 —So I have heard.


They queerly find some healing so,
 And strange attainment in the touch;
There is a secret lovers know,
 —I have read as much.


And theirs no longer joy nor smart,
 Changing or ending, night or day;
But mouth to mouth, and heart on heart,
 —So lovers say.
