Beauty in my eye

by Terrance Boult

Beauty beams from thy bronzed brow
Shimmering off your soft sweet smile
Engaging my glance and then some how
You steal my senses for a while.
The web you weave is strong indeed
Entirely enticing me
Your tying twine is all I need,
By binding me you set me free.
Though your beauty first bound my heart,
That is not why I am here today.
For even from the very start
'Twas true love that made me stay
   Your beauty, thought, shall not die
   For love 's engraved it in my eye.
