Give All To Love

Rating: 3.3

Give all to love;
Obey thy heart;
Friends, kindred, days,
Estate, good-fame,
Plans, credit, and the Muse,-
Nothing refuse.
'Tis a brave master;
Let it have scope:
Follow it utterly,
Hope beyond hope:

High and more high

There is confusion here between love and the heart. Love is in the heart, but the heart is not love. We can follow our hearts in many ways which do not require love – “good-fame, plans, credit.” Emerson makes an extremely important point about love – that each lover should serve the development of the other, even when that development means the end of love.

And its All For Love, interesting that no one comments on 'Free as an Arab Of thy beloved.' or analyzes line meanings, ok I won't either. But as it's give all to love, I will leave a token, the start of 'Song Of My Love' 'As the rains come and the winds blow so the days go and the years flow. The crash of waves the thundering skies so my love goes on that never dies...'

Emerson seems to be giving scope to, the broard expansion of the flighty spirit of man.. Looking at fancy free women, as flowers to smell in their bloom. Kind of like walking on cloud 9 through life.

True love is consideration and dedication with honest involment....if everything around us is treated with such a kind of love then life will be great...the poem is simple yet excellent with a special touch in the last two lines...best lines are... 'It requireth courage stout, Souls above doubt, Valor unbending; It will reward, - They shall return More than they were, And ever ascending. Leave all for love; '
