Call Me Irresistible

prewedding

I loved you first: but afterwards your love Outsoaring mine, sang such a loftier song As drowned the friendly cooings of my dove. Which owes the other most? my love was long, And yours one moment seemed to wax more strong; I loved and guessed at you, you construed me And loved me for what might or might not be Nay, weights and measures do us both a wrong. For verily love knows not mine or thine; With separate I and thou free love has done, For one is both and both are one in love: Rich love knows nought of thine that is not mine; Both have the strength and both the length thereof, Both of us, of the love which makes us one. - Christina Rossetti
The End
