A Woman’s Last word -Robert Browning

Whenever I read this  poem by Browning the only expression I have is AWWWW..!! For all the fems who love Mills n boon, Jane Austin, Bronte’s, Nicholas Spark  and may be some guys who secretly read them too 😉 After all the poet who wrote is also a man…It makes me wonder how can they interpret such deep feelings and express it perfectly too. So may be there are at least some who know deep inside the woman heart quit nicely.

Let’s contend no more, Love,
Strive nor weep:
All be as before, Love,
—Only sleep!
What so wild as words are?
I and thou
In debate, as birds are,
Hawk on bough!

See the creature stalking
While we speak!
Hush and hide the talking,
Cheek on cheek!

What so false as truth is,
False to thee?
Where the serpent’s tooth is
Shun the tree—

Where the apple reddens
Never pry—
Lest we lose our Edens,
Eve and I.

Be a god and hold me
With a charm!
Be a man and fold me
With thine arm!

Teach me, only teach, Love
As I ought
I will speak thy speech, Love,
Think thy thought—

Meet, if thou require it,
Both demands,
Laying flesh and spirit
In thy hands.

That shall be to-morrow
Not to-night:
I must bury sorrow
Out of sight:

Must a little weep, Love,
(Foolish me!)
And so fall asleep, Love,
Loved by thee.
