Love Is Not Blind

 
 
 
Love is not blind. I see with single eye
Your ugliness and other women’s grace.
I know the imperfection of your face,-
The eyes too wide apart, the brow too high
For beauty. Learned from earliest youth am I
In loveliness, and cannot so erase
Its letters from my mind, that I may trace
You faultless, I must love until I die.
More subtle is the sovereignty of love:
So am I caught that when I say, "Not fair,"
‘Tis but as if I said, "Not here- not there-
Not risen- not writing letters." Well I know
What is this beauty men are babbling of;
I wonder only why they prize it so.

Proverbe du jour:
Almost all our unhappiness is the result of comparing ourselves to others.

    Hmmm. You have baffled me with brevity!  Did you guiltily compare yourself to someone else or prize beauty over something a little more subtle? Curious minds have to know!  ;  )
     
                                                      The Castle Lady        I\’ll just hit you with another kiss!  😄 
      BTW I think you look very handsome. Do you still style your hair that way?  I always liked long hair on men.

    Hello Evelyn,
     
    I found this wonderful picture:
    Castillo de Manzanares el Real (HDR)
    Don\’t know where it is (you probably do) but it looks great.
     
    Hugs & Kisses,
    Joey

    Just offhand I\’d say that\’s Palau Manzanares and it\’s an especially good pic of it. There are many Spanish castles so I could be wrong but it sure looks like it.
