Love is…

Love cares not for grand estate
For lords and ladies tall and great
The pauper with an empty plate
May even so adore his mate
Love cares not for dresses silk
Nor yet for skin as white as milk
As even those of beggars’ ilk
May find that love their ‘betters’ bilks
Love is cool when in the sun
Yet warms the soul when day is done
A demon child that gets its fun
By making fools of everyone
