shall I proclaim our love to the highest pinnacles of the earth?
shall I shout my adoration, undying, from the cliffs edging the sea?
my tongue longs to speak of the beauty of love's rebirth
my lips long to cry out, telling of the harmony twixt you and me
my heart bursts forth in a chest so confined by duty's grasp
as my love for you goes undeclared; unspoken; unrealized
for we hide the flower of love under a shadowed glass
I long for nothing more, than to feel your eyes gaze into mine
to speak your name without the hushed tones of secrecy
and to let the light of love burn, in once hurt-darkened eyes, for all to see
Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.....Henry David Thoreau
