O Love! Thou Makest All Things Even Poem by Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! Thou Makest All Things Even

Rating: 3.4


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!

Simple yet profound. She seems to take literally the verse in the Bible that says GOD IS LOVE. By the way, Rita Hawkins, you are talking to someone who has been dead since 1848!

Kim, I just wrote that she was born before her time. She ought to be born in the 1960's. No? I do not think she has taken the verse in the Bible literally. Not at all. She is just a very intelligent person who thought before her own period. Her poems present all her ideas and ideologies. Very intelligent.

She contributed to the first illustrated Government on Children in the Mines. Her feminism and professionalism, the nature of her work, and her unconventional lifestyle were all grounded in Unitarianism, the most progressive and liberating ideology of the 19th century. WOW! She was born 150 years too early! She had to be born in the 1967's the period of the " Dolle Mina' in the Netherlands. This poem is like a poem created in the year 2000's. Straight to the point/ goal.

Earth or heaven, seen or unseen, imaginative or non-imaginative all things made by God; and it through love~
