Poetry Tuesday: Ah, How Sweet

Not much time today, barely enough to put in the first and best verse of John Dryden’s most famous work. Simple, but very effective:

Ah, how sweet it is to love!
Ah, how gay is young desire!
And what pleasing pains we prove
When we first approach love’s fire!
Pains of love are sweeter far
Than all other pleasures are.
