“The Ways Of Love”


Everyone loves love; but how many can endure?
The ways of love are so many, we all must know.
From Fair love to the Sacred love; the Divine love to secure.
True Pure love, Impartial love can unconditionally glow.
Even Wicked love, Illicit love can be purified with love.
So many are the ways of love; thus we always admix.
But the domination of Unconditional love has been all above
Even Culprit’s love with Cupid’s love one can try to fix.
Platonic love with Physical love can shake hands together
This should be the ways of love, we perhaps cannot deny.
Matured love, healing love, even love bereft of feather.
Where the starvation of love never ever dares to pry
All kinds of love can conquer love of all kinds.
The atlas of love stays forever in the world of our minds.

    Hi Munia - I am honoured to be the first to comment on your Fifth Sonnet. I am a classical poet an I am always pleased when members of the Beautiful PH Family submit poems written in classical form such as Sonnets. I am a PERFROMANCE POET and all your poems have structure and metre which makes them perfect for recitation. 'God is Love - from Him doth all love flow - He who woluld know love - must first God know'. You acquiese to this in lines 2 & 4. As you say - Love is a many splendored thing' and an exploration of 'The Ways of Love' is a fitting task for the day designated to St Valentine. In line five you refer to the fact that 'Love Purifies' - an excuse often used by wayard men! Unconditional love is another matter and can result in miracles. Line Nine: Platonic love can lead to Physical Love and eventually to Emotional love - the ways of love are progressive and 'Falling in Love' endemic. Line Eleven mentions 'Matured Love' (rather than Mature Love) the former suggesting a process - the latter just age! In my experience (of 52 years of marriage) Matured Love does engender 'Healing Love' and prevents 'Love Starvation' which is the death knell of Marriage. This is truely a Shakespearean Sonnet because of its Rhyme Pattern and the fact that the ultimate doublet succinctly sums up the context of the whole poem. 'All kinds of love can conquer love of all kinds - The atlas of love stays forever in the world of our minds'. Thank you for sharing - it scores a TEN on all counts. Yours in Poetry - JOHN (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
