LOVE KNOWS THE TRUTH

Love knows the truth! No sudden shaft of light,Cleaving the darkness of a sleeping world,Speeds with a swifter, surer, gladder flightTo wake the sweetness in soft petals furledThan wings Love's thought of truth. Mid haunting fear,Mid sorrow, anger, selfishness, disdain,When mortal thought sinks cowering o'er the bierOf earthly hopes, while matter tries in vainTo give man peace, Love's ever steadfast eyes,Serene and clear, see all the perfect viewOf God's creation, see the cloudless skiesOf selfless joy giving to man anewHis splendid birthright, everlasting good.Love sees dark mists of doubt in Truth's warm glowLose their fantastic shapes, while faith is wooedFrom wistful hope to heights whence man can knowLife's changeless peace—the radiant golden dayOf Truth revealed through Love's illuming ray.
