    A man may buy a house, but its the woman who turns it into a home with love, sacrifice, hard chores to put the home in order. So {Home} & {Love} are the prerogative of the woman who has tied up with the man to start a family.Its true these two important words_____ Homa & Love are interconnected. Simple byut beautiful poem.

    I have a thick card with the poem Home and Love although it stops at Than home and love. By Robert W Service the front has two trees with a road leading to two homes. Its black and white on the back written in pencil says 1868

    1/2 3163 cant make out the last work. I don't know what it was made for. I am wondering if it is a template to create more of these. Does anyone know what it may be? I would appreciate any help (Report) Reply

    Who has Home and Love? Strong words that repells and attract at the same time! Bravo Dear Will. (Report) Reply

    Very nice that he was able to identify these two words out of all of them.
    Personally, I agree that these are the two most 'complete' words out there - purely in their feeling and uncompromising, agreeable adoration. (Report) Reply

    Without love where is life in the world? Love Is The Crowning Piece Of Nature! (Report) Reply

    I enjoy the subject of the poem and the basic idea behind each of the lines, but I feel like it could've been worded better. (Report) Reply

    Home without Love is bitterness;
    Love without Home is often pain....
    honest words from the depth of a loving heart... (Report) Reply

    Home is where love resides and love is the place of home and there is no doubt about it! They are more than heaven indeed! (Report) Reply

    A universal theme; and how poignantly summarised in the opening lines of Verse three 'And if you've both, well then I'm sure/You ought to sing the whole day long; ' (Report) Reply

    successful point of view all of us can feel it all over the ages it can be a theory because the best place u can feel safe is ur home & also love makes u feel safe & the best time u feel safe when u r with ur beloved so i believe that home is love and love is home (Report) Reply

    Words of wisdom from R W S but when poverty comes through the door
    Love often flys out the window. (Report) Reply
