Love Poem by Sarah Flower Adams

Love

Rating: 3.5


O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
Thou lookest in a grave,--to see
Thine immortality!

The second line is airy-fairy. The poem only makes sense if you believe in heaven, the Almighty, his plan, immortality etc etc. Should there not be a comma after 'things', and perhaps a colon after 'heaven'. Theologically, if God is Love then he is the plan, Love is not his plan. Also, what does she mean by 'Thou lookest in a grave, -to see Thine immortality! '? - That's a bit too subtle for me!

Pretty poem that doesn't rhyme with old fashioned language. It talks about what love can conquer and how you can use love but fails to mention all the hardships involved with love.
