To love well  is an art we can enact

To love well is an art and is an act
Yet we must bear in mind this valued truth
We need a little space in love for hate

We also will not leave outside our tact
Indeed, of love,  that is the final proof
To love well is an art and is an act

A love match is not where we check our mate
Nor do we leave the imprint of a hoof
We need a little space in love for hate

A fight, a quarrel, disagreement, fate
At times we both appear  to be uncouth
To love well is an art we learn to act

When frenzy fades and wonder’s a  mere hint
We long  for that once honeyed sweet ,sweet mouth
We need a little space in love for hate

To love forever we must take an oath
That we will not, of our power, go boast
To love well  is an art we can  enact
Oh, leave a  home there for our wild, wild hate
