Such simple a word, yet how great a feeling!
Love, entwined in life, cultivated in two;
So kind, its kind, so gentle and beautiful—
One can never feel two as right as in love.
O’, what a glamour in the universe, it is—
A sky, whence possibilities of forever beam;
Possibilities of bounds beyond life, beyond
An organ, a process, a reason—explanations.
O’, what rightness in being from nothingness
In humanity; what purpose, completeness
There is in words, not words when mouthed—
In hearts, not in human, but human when felt.
