Editor's Selection of Poems
Love Lives Beyond The Tomb

by John Clare

Love lives beyond 
The tomb, the earth, which fades like dew- 
I love the fond, 
The faithful, and the true.
Love lies in sleep, 
The happiness of healthy dreams, 
Eve's dews may weep, 
But love delightful seems.
'Tis seen in flowers, 
And in the even's pearly dew 
On earth's green hours, 
And in the heaven's eternal blue.
 
'Tis heard in spring 
When light and sunbeams, warm and kind,
On angels wing 
Bring love and music to the wind.
And where is voice
So young, so beautiful, so sweet 
As nature's choice, 
Where spring and lovers meet?
Love lies beyond 
The tomb, the earth, the flowers, and dew.
I love the fond, 
The faithful, young, and true.
