[Written for the Sentinel.]

LOVE IS ALL

Take courage, thou that failest; Love ne'er fails!In the extremity, Love's hand avails.Turn then thy thought from matter, that it mayIn Spirit find repose: thy burdens lay,And see them not nor fear them, till they fade—To e'en thy mortal sense become a shade.Canst thou in Love a single sorrow find?(Inharmony knows not harmonious Mind)But in Love's presence peace forever glows:Who knoweth Love, he gladness ever knows;Rest then thy heart within Love's sweet embrace,Seek thou Love's image, seek Love's tender face;In sweet communion joys eternal thouShalt see and taste, aye, know of heaven now;Nor rest thy hope in dim eternity:Thy bliss is here and now and e'er shall be.

In Love is comfort when all comforts fail,In Love is strength when error would prevail;To Love to flee when all our bulwarks fall,In Love to calmly know that Love is All.

We'd love to hear from you!
