SWEET is the birth of love, and the awaking,"Song: 'Sweet is the Birth of Love'" by Florence Earle Coates. Published in Lyrics of Life (1909) and Poems (1916) Volume II.
The bashful dream, the faltering desire,
The vision fair—of all fair things partaking—
The wonder, the communicable fire:
Sweet is the need to give and to obtain,—
And sweet love's pain!
