I might amend that to write:

And it would no more show the truth
of my love
than a used "French love letter"
dropped in the gutter
could show yours[/QUOTE]


I understand what you are looking for with the amendment suggestion.
And, indeed, if I were the type to want a classical cast (to my work) I would have gone that way.

But that ain't me.

Also, if I was that other way, I would have gone with the proper "French Letter" rather than stickin' my "Love" into the middle of it.



Thanks for your considerations, D.D.
