VALENTINE

a ladle addling youth from the hallowed fountain
savoir yet uncouth you faced the baleful mountain
to obtain a fabled truth curtailed by vengeful shadows
saved untouched unmind deep beyond the shallows

our prejudged saviours words are to be read as crime
chaste yet chased the lead follows the blind
scarred and scared secrete his sacred sacrament
body is bread bled to savour the best red wine

grace and gratitude become but garland and garment
and Love a beheaded saint is called my valentine
