Rhyme for Love
I want to find a word to rhyme with love,
as fresh as blossoms of a scarlet rose,
harmonious, like a hand inside a glove,
that makes me be the poet who'd compose
tomorrow's poems dressed up in new clothes.
If love could rhyme with beauty, happiness,
or even with the pain of loneliness,
my verse would strike its target like a spear.
Its cadence, novelty and loveliness
would even rouse the envy of Shakespeare.
