Love And The Gentle Heart

Rating: 3.8
Love and the gentle heart are one thing,
just as the poet says in his verse,
each from the other one as well divorced
as reason from the mind’s reasoning.

Nature craves love, and then creates love king,
and makes the heart a palace where he’ll stay,
perhaps a shorter or a longer day,
breathing quietly, gently slumbering.
Then beauty in a virtuous woman’s face

Such an exquisite sentiment yet you opted to have it read by a computerized lifeless voice. How sad...

Love and a gentle heart are like a container and the content. A gentle heart is the natural abode of love. Loved this philosophical poem. 'Virtuous man' - the last two words are so apt to the context!

wisely written- Love and the gentle heart are one thing ... Till love, at last, out of its dreaming starts. Woman’s moved likewise by a virtuous man /// like it
