i like this quite a lot.

the title, not so much.

and the inversion of L.1 sounds like Yoda, as most
inversions do, which i'd fix if it were mine.

beyond L.1 i think it's delightful...

Sublime and sacred, splendid grief
becoming selflessness in time
is love, but death is naught, for brief
is death and long is love.

Deep and bright-burning
are love and youth gone by
where sleep embraces age
and dreams are joys returning.

Bells sounding silver
are days and years passing;
and shells of men are we,
but love is ours forever.
