Love Comes Softly


Rains are to sow and good times to love
Built on soils rich of grave land
Such a valley long way to go, it comes softly
From that dead land, a place of living
To a loving land limits by the spring

So hard to shoot the routing star
A seed of peace into roots and leaves
Comes slowly in the stream sand
In the rivulets valleys, slops of God
Going deep in loam soiled hand
Down the rivers slowly it comes

The invisible altar is meant for pottery
As God provides the step of ridged love
Falling from the sky of love
So love comes softly

If gentle hearts fall in a pit of love
So easily they fall like red leaves
On God’s plans were made the best
And urge you run for a loved one
On love comes softly

And outer mountain is a carrier
You will stop it and find the stolen heart
And plead it to stay by your feet
And say I should stay
I stay because I love you
In the sunshine love comes softly

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Love will never come in the first place; it comes softly after sometime being closer to some one. In difficulties is the best time of showing up to someone. Be there until you are completely conquered by the word love! ! ! Remember it comes softly! !

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
