First Love John Clare (1793-1864)

Ine’er was struck before that hour
With love so sudden and so sweet.
With your face it bloomed like a sweet flower
And stole my heart away complete
My face turned to pearl, a beautiful pearl.
And I was here to stay,
And when you looked, at me I knew you loved me straight away?
My life all seemed turn to joy.
And then my blood rushed to my face
And took my eyesight saw you with a wonderful surprise,
The trees and bushes round the place
Seemed midnight at noonday I could not see a single thing, accept love
Words from my eyes did start-
They spoke as chords do from the string,
And blood burnt round my heart.
Are flowers the winter’s choice?
Is love’s bed always snow?
You both seemed to hear my silent voice
Not love appeals to know. I never saw so sweeter a face
As that which stood before me my wonderful life?
My heart has left its dwelling- place. And can return no more.

I love this man his poem’s
Trust you enjoy
