May I ask what thou art to me
You must login to vote
And may I answer thee most well?
To me thou art a noble lady
Of grace whereof I'd love to tell,
A maiden that's sage and lovely—
Whose mind is like a fertile dell.
To me thou art a raven-haired
With nobleness that’s long unseen.
To me thou art the one who's dared
To be the best friend I have seen
With whom I then entrust'd and shared
Hopes and dreams that have never been.
But most of all, to me thou art
A heavensend: a soul most true,
God's answer to my joyless heart
And to my life that I did rue;
Thou art to me the greatest part
Of hope and joy that now ensue.
"To have the soul of a poet is to feel with the mind, and to think with the heart."
