Something for my baby...

There is no LOVE enough for me to give you

There is no love enough for me to give you.

However much I feel, there should be more.

All the love an angel choir might sing you.

Never makes it halfway up that shore.

Know that I would burst my willing heart.

Your life to fill with pleasure overflowing,

Or if I had the genius and the art,
Undertake to paint your spirit glowing.

More beautiful than all the summer fields Or
all the cornucopias of fall,

The wish my insufficient passion yields

Holds me with a vastness I recall.

Even as your love became my sea,

Remember that the same is yours from me.
