! ! Barely Rhymed Sonnet: Love And Law - Poem by Michael Shepherd

The universe, a single act of love,
it’s said; and ever so, then, must remain;
is never other; has no place for hate,
save in the minds and hearts of less than men..

the universe, a single, lawful law;
from which all laws emerge, as reason does;
emerge as justice, in those laws observed;
and known and lived, a promise of true bliss;

may we, then, share a single, wholesome view
in which the love of law, and law of love
rest warm in heart and bright in eye and mind,
and meet to know this mercy from above?

Thus live as the Creator’s mind – a prayer
I barely dare; yet hope That heart to share..
