Unbridled hope is a kindness

To a foolish heart in love.

For Reason brings with Her

Discouragement and Caution.

To love with reckless abandonment

Would mean not to know

Nor to care

About the price to be paid

Or battles to be fought

For to love and defend so completely

Would leave no room

For Logic and her sensible sisters

With every crevice of the heart

Already claimed

By the enticing fervour

And irrational hopefulness

Of new love

Which knows no fear of the unknown

And has no regard for defeat.
