Never give all the heart, for love
Will hardly seem worth thinking of
To passionate women if it seem
Certain, and they never dream
That it fades out from kiss to kiss;
For everything that's lovely is
But a brief, dreamy, kind delight.
— W. B. Yeats
Down through the millennia the emotion of love has inspired countless poets to great heights of lyrical expression.
