  • All things do change:All things do love:All things are locked in hate:,
    Whoever fully thinks things through/holds the key to man's estate.
  • My poem (Love -Kisses XL1) is like a nugget of gold or clump of earth it contains within itself the seeds rhetoric, ethics, philosophy, mathematics,geography, music, astronomy, medicine, nature, law, writing, the more you seek within it, the more you will discover. If you love Heaven, take all this with sympathetic eyes and accept my zealous suggestion, then we shall not hesitate to inform others of this matter, with mature judgement and ripeness of experience, wheresoever divine grace might give us the life and opportunity to so do.
  • As harsh as Love-Kiss might sound in your ears it will resonate more swetly to your heart.
