Sonnet 908 by John Edwards

Sonnet 908

“Love And Need”

The difference between love and need

Is a theorem Pythagoras couldn't solve

One indefinable the other too easily satisfied

As the sweet promise of a transient rose

Holds the pollen that will feed

The tongues of bees for treasured honey

An equation than damned Othello's lust

And then Desdemona's faithful fall

So I think its a question better not to solve at all

Because I love you anyway

Beyond all others' want or need
