Ask, Is Love Divine - Poem by George Meredith

Ask, is Love divine,
Voices all are, ay.
Question for the sign,
There's a common sigh.
Would we, through our years,
Love forego,
Quit of scars and tears?
Ah, but no, no, no!

    Indeed love is greatest human power in the world! No one can forgo love ever because none can survive long sans love in the world! (Report)Reply
