Sonnet for Heather

I will not validate the “truth”
That this dalliance is predicated
Upon an attraction to your youth.
It is a charge to be debated.
But if there is some fact in this,
It does not make less true my kiss.
And you should no more trust my age,
Or learn from me, or call me “sage,”
But your own superior magic trust,
And know that’s what they seek of you;
We “knowing” men, we’ll want and lust.
Dare care not what we speak of you.
I’ll take what truths that you bestow,
Gratefully present while you grow.
