One sweet, sad secret holds my heart in thrall;
  A mighty love within my breast has grown,
    Unseen, unspoken, and of no one known;
      And of my sweet, who gave it, least of all.
        [Fr., Ma vie a son secret, mon ame a son mystere:
          Un amour eternel en un moment concu.
            La mal est sans remede, aussi j'ai du le taire,
              Et elle qui l'a fait n'en a jamais rien su.]
      - Alexis Felix Arvers, Sonnet,
        translated by Joseph Knight in "The Athenoeum", Jan. 13, 1906

Ask not of me, love, what is love?
  Ask what is good of God above;
    Ask of the great sum what is light;
      Ask what is darkness of the night;
        Ask sin of what may be forgiven;
          Ask what is happiness of heaven;
            Ask what is folly of the crowd;
              Ask what is fashion of the shroud;
                Ask what is sweetness of thy kiss;
                  Ask of thyself what beauty is.
      - Philip James Bailey, Festus
         (sc. A Party and Entertainment)

I cannot love as I have loved,
  And yet I know not why;
    It is the one great woe of life
      To feel all feeling die.

         (sc. A Party and Entertainment)

Love spends his all, and still hath store.

Any man, however blase or depraved, finds his love kindled anew when he sees himself threatened by a rival.

Authentic love always assumes the mystery of modesty, even in its expression, because actions speak louder than words. Unlike a feigned love, it feels no need to set a conflagration.
