Timeless

I know full well that beauty cannot last;
No flower springs but falls into decay;
But in my mind your beauty’s never past—
Life’s rose you are of my love’s lasting May.

I know that wrinkling time each face does pleat,
But naught stops your eyes’ winking, oh my sweet.
I know full well the beauty of your soul,
That all time’s time is time-less to control.
