Treasure Island

Richard Francis Burton

(1821 - 1890 / England)

Love Is Strong


A VIEWLESS thing is the wind,
But its strength is mightier far
Than a phalanxed host in battle line,
Than the limbs of a Samson are.

And a viewless thing is Love,
And a name that vanisheth;
But her strength is the wind’s wild strength above,
For she conquers shame and Death.

    Do we have this strength in our love?
