First Line: There's no love like hopeless love

Subject(s): Love - Nature Of


There's no love like hopeless love
When the sin of it is shriven,
And from thought of pleasure driven,
Love itself grows sweet above
All the joys it dreameth of.
So my soul by loss hath thriven,
For the wayward god, forgiven,
Gave me back, the subtle thief,
Peace, and on the wings of grief
Carried me from earth to heaven.
