We want love and love poems

By Dorothy Brooks

We want love and love poems,
Not these dry, straw-like
Intellectual fires from pale minds,
Trying to tell truth, politics, morals, nature!

O sickly fishes in the beautiful seas! 

Imagine instead the pearly dreams
Of lovers dreaming of their lovers,
Or tasting the bitter and thirsty taste
Of their absent love. 

The heart can sing only
When it loves and is loved!
