    Tanith Lee
    “A rose by any other name
    Would get the blame
    For being what it is--
    The colour of a kiss,
    The shadow of a flame.

    A rose may earn another name,
    So call it love;
    So call it love I will,
    And love is like the sea,
    Which changes constantly,
    And yet is still
    The same.”

    Edwin Morgan
    “When you go,
    if you go,
    And I should want to die,
    there's nothing I'd be saved by
    more than the time
    you fell asleep in my arms
    in a trust so gentle
    I let the darkening room
    drink up the evening, till
    rest, or the new rain
    lightly roused you awake.
    I asked if you heard the rain in your dream
    and half dreaming still you only said, I love you.”
    Edwin Morgan, New Selected Poems
