OLD LOVE AND NEW



First love is young love
Is hope and zest
But old love
Is tried love
And tried love
Oh, tried love is best.

Young love is always
Is likened as
Of gold
But love that is
Tried love
Is always new
Tho' old.

But tried love
Is dear love
Is true love
That stands the test
Of time
And tried love
This is a love sublime
In face of all
Divine!

  1. Margie, reading this sent a shiver through my body. I will read this over and over again in the coming weeks and months.

    I have one word for you: Exquisite!

  2. Ya know...I write about LOVE a lot, often. And I mean it, I believe that God IS love, and love IS God. Sure it can be argued and clothed fancily in words not understood...to become something other than "Godlike".

    BUT, Ma'am, your few lines here are what anyone can read, comprehend, and undeniably say what love is, that it is ever growing, and we will still find that each has a different concept of it.
