by Vachel Lindsay (1879 - 1931)

You are a sunrise
Language: English 
You are a sunrise,
If a star should rise instead of the sun. 
You are a moonrise.
If a star should come, in the place of the moon. 
You are the Spring,
If a face should bloom.
Instead of an apple-bough. 
You are my love
If your heart is as kind
As your young eyes now.
