Ah Yes Love

Today I have Scrap that Poetry's next challenge for you using  a poem by Clarence B. Campbell... Ah yes! Love
Ah, yes! Love 
Is peaches and honey, and figs, and cream. 
And wild grapes dripping beside the stream, 
Humming birds, 
And a young man's dream! 
Ah, yes! Love 
Is bubbles and beauty and lantern light, 
Music and madness and dizzy height, 
And a star-filled night! 

Ah, yes! Love 
Is oceans and azure, and infinite skies, 
Rubies and ivory, and fathomless eyes, 
Where the bluebird springs 
And signs as he flies! 
Ah, yes! Love 
Is whispers, and flickers, and candleshine, 
Glances and trances, and deep, red winde, 
And the moon-dust that clings 
To the gossamer vine! 

Ah, yes! Love 
Is kisses, caresses, and sweet desire, 
Prickles and shivers, and flashing fire, 
And melodies 
From a throbbing lyre! 
Ah, yes! love 
Is silver, and roses, and gay champagne, 
And the soft reprise of the April rain, 
And memories 
That will long remain!
