As hot as fire burns

As round as the earth turns

Like sun that squints the eye

Like stars fill the night sky


As a tree with water grows

As the wind over ocean blows

Like a desert e’er is dry

Like time does e’er go by


As day does turn to night

As birds do take to flight

Like mountains fill with snow

Like summer comes and goes


As flowers take to bloom

As life does end in tomb

Like waves of oceans crash

Like first love does abash


As winter comes so cold

As you and I grow old

Like nature’s cycles be

This is how I shall love thee
