[Written for the Sentinel]


How wonderful is Love!

Yes, Love is wonderful. But what is Love?
It is not anything that men call love:
Love is impartial, universal good.
It giveth all, yet asks naught in return.
Love never envies—nay, for Love has all;
And though it gives all, still has all to give.
Love is the wisdom that doth understand
All that men need, the substance that supplies.
Love never fails: it is th' untiring Mind
That vigil keeps above a sleeping world
And waits for it to wake—and still is Love;
And when it wakes, is Love forevermore.
And Love is Truth—that Truth which makes men free;
And Love is Life—that Life which knows no death.
Love knows no evil, but is only good;
For God is good,
And Love is God.
