The Superior Love


In the present modern world,
Very often 'Love' is mixed
With love for lust, a passion,
Lo, what a narrow interpretation?

Is love at first sight a real one?
Does it not end in infatuation
In most of the cases known,
Or what in the screen shown?

What does the real love stand for
In the words of our Creator?
'Love they neighbour, I love thee'
That's what, with love, says He.

Love in the highest sense
For the world, what it means?
Isn't that love for the Almighty
From the weakest to the mighty?

Love for God, a divinity.
Love for mankind, an affinity.
Love for the world, a humanity.
Love for virtue, an austerity.

Love for self, an egoism.
Love for country, a patriotism.
Love for lust, a veritable passion.
Love for animals, a compassion.

Love for children, an affection.
Love for wealth, a possession.
Love for hate, an aversion.
Love for vice, a degradation.

That which comes from a heart,
But not from one's lips apart,
And that melts another heart
Is the real love, to say in short.

The wagging tail shows dog's love.
The fondling touch reveals cat's love.
In the world of life, is there one
With no love for any creation?

The word 'Love' means not
Ordinary body love, of what
The people of passion meant,
But that lives in every noble heart.

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
