LET NONE BEMEAN THE NAME OF GOD, by            
First Line: Let none bemean the name of love, nor cry
Last Line: Came forth, when angels moved the stone aside.
Subject(s): God


Let none bemean the name of love, nor cry
Him faithless when he dies as I must, too,
For love is heir to immortality
No more than I am heir, no more than you.
Love is as frail as your own heart, or mine,
As given to caprice, to jest, and lie;
Yet, godlike as man's body is, divine
As flesh that burns to live, and lives to die ...
And yet, there is no potion for love's death
To ease his passing, and no word to say
When he is gone, but mocks our mortal breath.
Still, as you leave love's sepulchre, I stay,
Remembering how love men crucified
Came forth, when angels moved the stone aside.
