    Very truly said:

    Conflicting ideas, views, concepts, attitudes and what else may collide, yet, love will survive amidst all that! An excellent theme and a wonderful write. I like it. (Report) Reply

    The last two lines are so very nice. Sometimes I wish that we still talked like that so I could learn to better understand the exact connotations on all the words he uses. There is no question as to why this poem is still around. I feel like there is more to it than what it says...I wonder what Edmund Spenser was thinking about when he wrote it? (Report) Reply

    such is the power of love in gentle mind. That it can alter all the course of kind. A great poem. More than four hundred years before the poem created and in such beauty and word power. The experience of reading such poems really feeling happiness. (Report) Reply

    Hahaha! Something's never change with time. The cool aloof lady warmed the cockles of his heart and this made him want her even more. I liked how this is relevant so much today as much as it did at the time. (Report) Reply

    this love is not easy, just absorb in your mind
    it's a sea full of fire
    Love is drowning into boiling water (Report) Reply
