We fell in love the best way, sight unseen,Pure hunger that nor feast nor flesh could sate,Two hidden flames fair fed by phrases burning.
Most find their way by sight into the heart,Loving first what must most quickly changeAnd only then what will the years endure.
We did the opposite, though not by art,Taking steps that we did not arrangeAlong a path both passionate and sure.
