Then said Almitra, 'Speak to us of Love.'

And he raised his head and looked upon the people, and there fell a stillness upon them.

And with a great voice he said:

A wonderful poem on love, it takes some for the lines to sink into our hearts. 'When love beckons to you follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.' - Loved these lines.

Different from any other, I have ever read, love between the carnal and the divine seems to be the thread. But almost all its facets here expressed are amazingly profound and rightly addressed and beautifully expressed. A poem to be read many times and to slowly understand and embrace.

Love is a subject explored by many but Khalil Gibran is master of it.

Great metaphors of the sacrifice and commitment of love. 'Though his ways are hard and steep.' 'Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.'
