    "human love"

    Lay your sleeping head,
    My love,
    Human on my faithless arm;
    Time and fevers burn away.

    Individual beauty from
    Thoughtful children,
    And the grave
    proves the child ephemeral:

    But in my arms till break of day
    Let the living creature lie,
    Mortal,
    Guilty,
    But to me,
    The entirely beautiful.

    Soul and body have no bounds:
    To lovers as they lie upon
    Her tolerant enchanted slope
    In their ordinary swoon,
    Grave the vision Venus sends
    Of supernatural sympathy,
    Universal love and hope;
    While an abtrack insight wakes
    Among the glacires and the rocks
    The hermit's carnal ectasy.

    Certainty,
    Fidelity,
    On the stroke of midnight pass
    Like vibration of a bell
    And fashionable madmen raise
    Their pedantic boring cry:
    Every farthing of the cost,
    All the dreaded cards foretell,
    Shall a whistper,
    Not a thought,
    Not a kiss nor a look be lost.

    Beauty,
    Midnight,
    Vision dies:
    Let the winds of dawn that blow
    Softly round your dreaming head
    Such a day of welcome show
    Eye and knocking heart may bless,
    Find our mortal world enough;
    Noons of dryness find you fed
    By the involuntary powers,
    Nights of insult let you pass
    Watched by Every human love.

    Wow. Just wow, that you'd actually plagiarize Auden and think nothing of it. This is one of his best and most beautiful works, "Lay Your Sleeping Head, My Love":

    Lay Your Sleeping Head, My Love - Poem by W. H. Auden
    W. H. Auden - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
