The language of love

Love has no such language
only it can be felt
it can be realised
can not be written in any script
no such script is yet invented
can manifest the script of heart

A baby is innocent
about all languages of world
he can read the language of love
any animal or insect
understand, but a person
having an university degree
may not understand
the language of love

A butcher when enter a village
mother cattle starts crying
so understand the languge of heart of butcher

language of heart is silent
radiate with enormous wave

Man is still behind
to read the language of heart

    This poem holds a lot of depth! Love needn't be articulate! It needs no language! The animals which are deprived of speech can discern the mute language of love! But man doesn't have this gift, we are often made to think! But still the language of love and hate radiate their own waves around which can be often felt, though not explicitly expressed in words! A great write! (Report) Reply

    The study does not qualify a man to the degree of being human. How many doctors, scientists, men of culture, killed people, invented killer ways or created laws or speeches against the peoples of the world.
    The language of love is not for everyone is for those who know how to love and accept that on your heart.
    One of the best poems of love that i read before. Belíssimo Poet! ! (Report) Reply

    True. Moving. Beautiful! Thank you for share, I really loved it. I was trying to find a way to teach love for such a long time. And I realized only recently that loved cannot be taught. We can only try to love people as they are regardless if they have a heart filled with love or not. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
