    LOVE - what is love? A great and
    aching heart;
    Wrung hands; and silence; and a long
    Life - what is life? Upon a moorland
    To see love coming and see love
    depart.what a beautiful poem.thanks for shairing...10++++

    Brief, but to the point. Several unanswered questions there which most of us ask at some time or another in our lives. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem, good point of view, food for thought and wonders, I think love could be so much more than silence and despair. Suppose love never goes away from one's heart, then, what is life? Can love bring a lot of pain yes, but maybe through such pain we get to learn of the true beauty, true meaning of life, the freedom given by true love? (Report) Reply

    When I read this poem, I feel despondent. Love, in this telling, is elusive for the poet. Bummer. (Report) Reply
