Love, till dawn sunder night from day with fire,
Dividing my delight and my desire,
The crescent life and love the plenilune,
Love me through dusk begin and dark retire;
Ah God, ah God, that day should be so soon.

-In The Orchard
Daniela_C_xx's rating:
Rate:
Yes, Heaven is thine; but this
Is a world of sweets and sours;
Our flowers are merely- flowers,
And the shadow of thy perfect bliss
Is the sunshine of ours.

-Israfel
Daniela_C_xx's rating:
Rate:
The fountains mingle with the river,
And the rivers with the ocean;
The winds of heaven mix forever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
All things by a law divine
In another's being mingle--
Why not I with thine?

-Love's Philosophy
Daniela_C_xx's rating:
Rate:
Average listal rating (16 ratings) 9.1 IMDB Rating 0
As once I wept, if I could weep,
My tears might well be shed,
To think I was not near to keep
One vigil o'er thy bed;
To gaze, how fondly! on thy face,
To fold thee in a faint embrace,
Uphold thy drooping head;
And show that love, however vain,
Nor thou nor I can feel again.

-And Thou art Dead, as Young and Fair
Daniela_C_xx's rating:
Rate:
A man had given all other bliss,
And all his worldly worth for this,
To waste his whole heart in one kiss
Upon her perfect lips.

-Sir Launcelot and Queen Guinevere
Daniela_C_xx's rating:
Rate:
Average listal rating (270 ratings) 8.7 IMDB Rating 0
She is too fair for any man
To see or hold his heart's delight,
Fairer than Queen or courtesan
Or moonlit water in the night.

-La Bella Donna Della Mia Mente (Lovely Lady of My Memory)
Daniela_C_xx's rating:
Rate:
Under the arch of Life, where love and death,
Terror and mystery, guard her shrine, I saw
Beauty enthroned; and though her gaze struck awe,
I drew it in as simply as my breath.

-Soul's Beauty
Daniela_C_xx's rating:
Rate:
And wilt thou leave me thus?
And have no more pity,
Of him that loveth thee?
Alas! thy cruelty!

-And Wilt Thou Leave Me Thus?
Daniela_C_xx's rating:
Rate:
O truant Muse, what shall be thy amends
For thy neglect of truth in beauty dyed?
Both truth and beauty on my love depends;
So dost thou too, and therein dignified.

-Sonnet 101
Daniela_C_xx's rating:
Rate:
I am in chains, O maiden-rose,
And yet, not shameful of these guards;
A nightingale, thus, – in dense laurels –
A feathered king of the woods’ bards,
A proud and charming rose over,
In a sweet bondage – lives for long
And softly sings for her a song
Under a sensual night’s cover.

-"I am in chains"
Daniela_C_xx's rating:
Rate:
Average listal rating (9 ratings) 8.7 IMDB Rating 0
Prefer my cloak unto the cloak of dust
'Neath which the last year lies,
For thou shouldst more mistrust
Time than my eyes.

-The Cloak
Daniela_C_xx's rating:
Rate:
The reason no man knows; let it suffice
What we behold is censured by our eyes.
Where both deliberate, the love is slight:
Who ever loved, that loved not at first sight?

-Who Ever Loved That Loved Not at First Sight?

Pushkin should be number one. But he's on here, so I voted. :) j/k (sort of), good list.
