Love And Let it Go

If love be love, freely, let it go
Freed love learns to grow
Seeks the elusive dream of its own
If love be love, it'll come home
For now, it's gone on a fickle sojourn
If love is not love, it would not return
If love is not love, freely, let it go
If love be love, return it will, to show

    What a generous sentiment runs through this poem! There seems to be a crisis of some kind in the background of the poem, but instead of reacting with anger and out of fear, the speaker reacts with confidence in love's triumph out of faith and hope. To be able to express such positive emotion when there must a strong temptation to accuse and lose hope shows a remarkable poise. I used to teach plays by Henrik Ibsen to high school students. I was fond of one his lesser known plays, THE LADY FROM THE SEA, which expresses exactly your sentiment in this poem. And the marriage triumphs at the end of the drama because husband and wife trusted each other's freedom. (Report) Reply

    With epigrammatic brevity you have beautifully briefed the true nature of love! If love is true and genuine, even if it has gone on a sojourn, it will come back! Otherwise, it won't return and freely let it go! (Report) Reply
