Here you will find the Poem Love Song of poet Elinor Morton Wylie

Love Song

Lovers eminent in love 
Ever diversities combine; 
The vocal chords of the cushat-dove, 
The snake's articulated spine.

Such elective elements 
Educate the eye and lip 
With one's refreshing innocence, 
The other's claim to scholarship.

The serpent's knowledge of the world 
Learn, and the dove's more naïve charm; 
Whether your ringlets should be curled, 
And why he likes his claret warm.
