Let the Lovers SleepLet the lovers sleep, my dear,Let the Lovers Sleep2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
with tangled limbs exposed
lest they wake, and out of fear
fast don their heavy clothes
We were like them, and could be now,
it is not youth's sole domain
to feel those passions and wonder how
other souls feel not the same.
So let the dreamers sleep, my love
and fret not while they repose
'tis never a scandal to they above
to embrace your love while you doze.
