O Love! Thou Makest All Things Even

Poem by Sarah Flower Adams

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!

    This reminds me of Lord Ganesha! t So also, as man belongs to the Earth, his body has to be settled with the Earth[s soil for his soul to mingle one with the All Pervading God Spirit! Thanks for sharing this here!(Report)Reply

    CONGRATULATIONS to the late great poetess Sarah Flower Adams and to her close relatives in the U.K.
    A very impressing poem, for this time, but especially in the age she worked and lived. Born before her time,
    if I may say. All her poems (so few here) has shown that. She wrote no flowery poetry, but straight to the goal.
    So sad that her poems are submitted so limited. God's Blessings to her great close relatives in the UK.(Report)Reply

    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.(Report)Reply

    A wonderful love poem that ends in a philosophical thought. The last four lines demand contemplation for full comprehension.(Report)Reply
