LOVE'S POWER, by            
First Line: You ask me what I think of life and love
Last Line: And speak the magic word that lifts its own.
Subject(s): Love


You ask me what I think of life and love,
And if I count them fit to compensate
For all the strife and stress of fear and hate,
And all the stark disharmonies that shove
(Without the smallest pin-point inkling of)
The soul of man from bliss of heaven's state
To that impasse where he would rail at fate
Until, befogged, he sees no light above.
I say to you: Transcending all the list
Of ills you marshall, love can stand alone,
Serene, though all should strike with mailed fist,
For love can grant to life its overtone,
And pierce by brightest panoply through mist,
And speak the magic word that lifts its own.
