Swear Not

i do not swear this Love on the Lady moon
for though i love her
she can be . . . inconstant

i do not swear this Love on the Sun’s furnace
for though i live in his blood
my love would pass him . . . unnoticed

i do not swear this Love on this Zephyr
for though she touches me at every point
she only knows . . . how to tease

i do not swear this Love on the acts of man
for though i am a civilized being
i have not always acted in the best way . . .

i swear this Love on the only constant
in my ‘Verse
i swear this Love on the Fire in my heart
