Valentine Love Poetry: Syntax


I want to call you thou, the sound
of the shape of the start
of a kiss - like this, thou –
and to say, after, I love,
thou, I love, thou I love, not
I love you.

Because I so do –
As we say now – I want to say
thee, I adore thee,
and to know I n my lips
The syntax of love resides,
and to gaze in thine eyes.

Love’s language starts, stops, starts;
The right words flowing or clotting in the heart.
