LOVE IS NOT by: Marcus Argentarius (20 B.C-30 AD)
Love is not just a function of the eyes.
Beautiful objects will, of course,inspire
Possessive urges-you need not despise
Your taste. But when insatiable desire
Inflames you for a girl who’s out of fashion,
Lacking in glamour - plain, in fact- that fire
Is genuine; that’s the authentic passion.
Beauty, though, any critic can admire.
