Love

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
Thou lookest in a grave,--to see
Thine immortality!

    Pretty poem that doesn't rhyme with old fashioned language. It talks about what love can conquer and how you can use love but fails to mention all the hardships involved with love.

    Hmmm. Actually, that is what love is.

    Love is unique gift of god which has no substitude.

  • Prince Ifeoluwa Daniel Shanu-olu (12/26/2013 3:27:00 AM)

    This poem discusses God as an epitome of an imperishable love by replicating himself in human form from the dust. The diction is simple and straight forward

    This is all over the place
    One dead end to the other without any real descriptive, heartfelt concepts.
    Perhaps, that was the shape of Sarah's heart?
    It the realm of love it works but the wording lacks interpersonal depth
    I'm afraid in this case, less isn't more
    It's unusual to see a woman describe love in such a philosophically detached manner
    Meh, maybe it's an English thing..: o)

    On a second or third reading of the poem Love by Flower Adams and another perusal of comments by PH readers, I think most of us by and large missed the import (especially old E.S!) in the first line. The speaker addresses Love and makes the remark that in the end, when all is said and done, we mortals began as specks of dust and will in time be returned to that state The reader is admonished to look in the grave to see thine immortality! The resurrection? I don't think so. Depending on long the remains have been interred, the only trace
    of what was once a living being is a heap of bones or dust in piles..
