His ardor had admired
From a distance too far,
For the lovely one tired...
Some conventions do bar
Passion being inspired.

Her silence gave consent
So quenching his ardor
He was forced to relent...
Ones fear is not smarter,
Yet passion can prevent.

Risk an ort for the lot?
Safety suggests one should
Hang on to what she's got...
Sans passion, any good
The recall of what's not?

The precious lasts a day
For the few who are blest,
Then beauty's on it's way...
A rare songbird at rest,
Hot passion flits away.
