Love Overflowed

by William Spell Jr.

Love filled me up, and overflowed,
Then spilled right out of me.
From where it poured, a new love showed,
And swelled, then, too, streamed free.
In its devotion does prevail
Divine cupidity:
To dam, to shore, to steer, to sail
Love's warm fluidity.
No moored or anchored berth I find;
'Tis love's commands control
The navigation of my mind,
And currents of my soul.
Love filled me up, and overflowed,
And then became a sea.
And in my heart and mind bestowed
A vast eternity.
