Sonnet: “A Student's Crush”My lovely friend and much favored professor,
is it so wrong to love and to admire
you with so great and amorous a splendor
that knows no bounds but this heartfelt desire?
Your silhouette is my Achilles' heel
and your lips (what lips those are!) dare I kiss?
Your cheeks that blush with tint and life reveal
a sound and healthy soul that stirs my bliss.
Woe am I! This dilemma—my desire
for you which seizes me when you’re so near!!
Must I sweep away this o'erwhelming fire
for you that are my feelings Rose, my dear?
If I were not your grad student, dear friend,
could I be more to you by this line's end?
