John Keats
You Say You Love

You say you love; but with a voice
Chaster than a nun's, who singeth
The soft vespers to herself
While the chime-bell ringeth?
O love me truly!

You say you love; but with a smile
Cold as sunrise in September,
As you were Saint Cupid's nun,
And kept his weeks of Ember.
O love me truly!

You say you love; but then your lips
Coral tinted teach no blisses,
More than coral in the sea?
They never pout for kisses?
O love me truly!

You say you love; but then your hand
No soft squeeze for squeeze returneth,
It is like a statue's, dead?
While mine for passion burneth?
O love me truly!

O breathe a word or two of fire!
Smile, as if those words should burn me,
Squeeze as lovers should?O kiss
And in thy heart inurn me?
O love me truly!
