Love Song

Lovers eminent in love
Ever diversities combine;
The vocal chords of the cushat-dove,
The snake’s articulated spine.

Such elective elements
Educate the eye and lip
With one’s refreshing innocence,
The other’s claim to scholarship.

The serpent’s knowledge of the world
Learn, and the dove’s more na├»ve charm;
Whether your ringlets should be curled,
And why he likes his claret warm.
