    Hail Love, hail Love, because Love is divine
    It is tender,
    It is beautiful and benign

    What passion, what passion, we are burning like the sun
    It is hidden and obscure, it is an obvious sign.

    We've fallen, we've fallen, it is hard to rise up
    We know not, we know not, this complex chaotic design.

    Hail the moon, hail the moon, it is curved like a cup
    To the features and the world, it gave shape, shade and line
    Dismounted, dismounted, his horse the King of Kings

    Hail the dust, hail the dust, that his trail would define.

    What picture, what picture, is drawn on the canvass of the heart
    How strange, how strange, with the heavens must align.

    Be the silent jug, be the silent jug, that holds the secret
    From the left, from the right, everyone seeks that wine.

    This brook has such a song, that turns our fortune's wheel
    Not of fate, not of song, neither of this clay of mine
    Neither trap, nor of chain, then why do we feel encaged?

    What shackle and what rope is so strong yet so fine?​

    Love takes a hold of one such that we don't realize it's hold until we try to break it. Such a well posed piece poet...wow.

    This scribe is ever so lovely.
    I have to agree with j'hiah, the
    last line is what made this piece
    so devine.


    Much Luv
