maxim ~ a saying that is widely accepted on its own merits

it stands before me now, in spite of many prayers,

imprint upon my remembrance,

more an assumption than a saying, still mostly true

as borne by its pre-sale presentation of itself

o sad world in which I live where such is desired

fleeting pleasure with a lovely stranger

rather the wondrous joy of the lover of ones life
