Lovers from the Lais of Marie de France

All the Lady Smut team wish you a happy Valentine’s Day. If you love someone, draw them near. If love has eluded you, keep hope alive by reading more steamy romance. If you feel alone on this day of hearts and flowers, follow the #joinin tag on Twitter to share the day with other folks who find themselves on their own — a wonderful holiday tradition (for all the holidays) started by comedian Sarah Millican.

Sonnet 13 – And wilt thou have me fashion into speech

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

And wilt thou have me fashion into speech
The love I bear thee, finding words enough,
And hold the torch out, while the winds are rough,
Between our faces, to cast light on each?—
I drop it at thy feet. I cannot teach
My hand to hold my spirit so far off
From myself—me—that I should bring thee proof
In words, of love hid in me out of reach.
Nay, let the silence of my womanhood
Commend my woman-love to thy belief,—
Seeing that I stand unwon, however wooed,
And rend the garment of my life, in brief,
By a most dauntless, voiceless fortitude,
Lest one touch of this heart convey its grief

Be sure to join the Lady Smut crew every day for more news and delight. And here’s a free gift, today only!

    Maybe if she hadn’t made him carry her and the dog, he would have made it up the mountain. Ah, the foolishness of youth!
