object:3.1.06 - Immortal Love
book class:Collected Poems
author class:Sri Aurobindo
If I had wooed thee for thy colour rare,
Cherished the rose in thee
Or wealth of Nature's brilliants in thy hair,
O woman fair,
My love might cease to be.
Or, had I sought thee for thy virtuous youth
And tender yearning speech,
Thy swift compassion and deliberate truth,
O heart of ruth,
Time might pursue, might reach.
But I have loved thee for thyself indeed
And with myself have snared;
Immortal to immortal I made speed.
Change I exceed
And am for Time prepared.
