    For Love doth use us for a sound of song,
    And Love’s meaning our life wields,
    Making our souls like syllables to throng
    His tunes of exultation.

    All please Note;
    here is an ancient dead Poet's poem with some of our live comments. A copy-cat writ of their forever Literary immortal William Shakespeare

    Are we embarrassed as 'Foreigners' to pretend to comprehend such gibberish, playful worded, rhetoric?
    This British Bard, would have discovered as many others in the world that

    ' GOD IS LOVE '

    * 'What would we call God, by
    what other name? Only Love
    would be the same'

    More; see; *'As A Rose'

    A hymn to the god of love which, if there were such a god, would have some meaning.
    Otherwise, however good the poetry, it is all false.
    God is love, love is god - what on earth can those statements mean?
    What the weird spellings in the first two verses are there for I do not know and I do not care.
