At First Sight

Is the frequent, cherished claim
that love springs up
upon a look anew
a  romance lie?
 
Oh no, I say.
I had the solid proof
the claim was fully true
when I first looked
into my lover’s flashing eyes.
 
So swayed was I
by them
and how they had me held
within her gaze,
then gob-stooped, rooted, and amazed,
I kenned how indisputably
that I was finally graced
by angels and by god,
that I was uncontrollably compelled
to praise into the sky
a “thank you, thank you, thank you! and
a fierce “Amen”!
