Heart Don't Fall
Some time ago, I fell in love with the Trockee rhythm. And although it's not as easy to write in as the Iamb, I love the skipping sound of the lines.


Heart, Don’t Fall

Heart, don’t fall in love with love this time;
Learn each graceful step within its dance,
Hearken to the rhythm that in thine
Ear doth beat its message of romance,
     But think not that these pleasant moves be more
     Than untapped passion gliding on the floor.  

Heart, don’t fall in love with love this time;
Trust no leap that lands thee in despair;
Seek beyond the bliss and take the climb
Above the peek of passion, if ye dare,
     But let sound footing keep thee most of all
     Steadfast on the ledges, lest ye fall.

Heart, don’t hurt for love of love this time;
Wield thy passion’s wild intensity,
Forge a tune or craft an artful rhyme
Within the kiln of life, if this needs be,
     But do not burn thyself for burning’s sake
     While to thyself no worthy lover take.

A beautiful song--don't you just love the archaic language? Methinks the 'olde ones' would appreciate your use of it!
