“And Shall Not Love Be Thus a Mystery?…”

Happy Valentine’s Day! And, for your festivities, a Spanish love sonnet that I wrote on 2/14/96

And Shall Not Love Be Thus a Mystery?

by Catherine Kane

And shall not Love be thus a Mystery,
In Secret shrouded, hidden from the eye,
Full fleet, elusive, swift as hours that fly,
Seductive as it shields its charms from thee?
And shall we not pursue this Mystery,
Not tread the Maze to find the heart it hides,
Not seize it now and see that it abides,
And claim it as our prize in Victory?
Though cunning, it can never match our guile.
Though fleet it be, our feet are fleeter still.
Though hidden, we shall find it in the end,
Together, we shall pass through Love’s sweet trial,
Together, we shall bend it to our will,
And bear it homeward as our Prize and Friend.

Catherine Kane
