Lust for one you love
Is like a garden flower
That must be pruned and weeded
Before it yields its treasure.

Years refine its grace,
But only with devotion
And much imagination
To freshen the familiar.

But, ah! what then the freedom
That comes alone from giving
And knowing that your wishes
Will be your lover's pleasure!

For in the utmost chamber
Lust is quickly sated
While love still brings redemption,
Ever life's sole savior.
