John William Godward, When the Heart is Young (1902)
When the Heart is Young, Robert A. Sieczkiewicz
When the heart is young it controls the mind.
Love, the greatest reason to be alive.
It’s love that shows the way, even though blind,
It provides needed power to survive.
New eager feeling can be found inside,
As the bee in spring seeking a flower,
Here and there, everywhere, busy it flied,
Sampling but yet not filling its desire.
Only time can provide a love so true.
Will be greater than a carnal pleasure.
Gently quiets the pain that made you blue,
With a healing touch that will reassure.
The young at heart are easily confused,
Not always sure the heart will be unbruised.
