I first met Lord Byron
In Miss Moore’s Literature class
When in High School

I was in love with love
And may still be
Lord Byron Touched my soul.

Miss Moore’s true love
Was taken from her in WWI
She would never marry.

Byron spoke of undying love
Of love lost to death
Of pain felt while seeing battlefields.

Though time has changed what mirror reflects
My mind, my heart remains forever young
Because Lord Byron spoke thru Miss Moore to me.
