Love’s Chastening by Paul Laurence Dunbar

Home / Paul Laurence Dunbar, Short Love Poems / Love’s Chastening by Paul Laurence Dunbar

Once Love grew bold and arrogant of air,
Proud of the youth that made him fresh and fair;
So unto Grief he spake, “What right hast thou
To part or parcel of this heart?” Grief’s brow
Was darkened with the storm of inward strife;
Thrice smote he Love as only he might dare,
And Love, pride purged, was chastened all his life.
