Ah, Love 1961

            Ah, Love #5

In thee, I will great fault not find:

I could, but would not still a mind

That is my own

When I must tone

My own brain first.

Perfect sees as perfect is;

And frail sees what too is his.

I will not find great fault in thee;

The time consumed thus doth fast flee.

As fault by fault is gleaned and tried,

Not a strength is classified;

For your disgruntle, my dismay

Such waste of crime does not to pay.

Great fault I will not find in thee

Because I am not blind to me;

And love should choose itself to serve,

Or cut itself off nerve by nerve.

Should I erase

Each grace by grace,

And built a vault

Thick walled with fault,

This heart must brace,

(Steeled walls replace

Each trace of play

With lead) and lead

The dead critique away.
