Useful And Fantastic: Love Is Our Only Hope
Val Yule brings us a poem for this particular day.
Love is transitive
Love is very patient, very kind.
It is a passion in the blood.
It is amor, eros, agape –
it would make the world go round if it had a chance.
Love is courage
Is it two-dimensional, electronic, film, TV?
– the shadows of love.
Come away from the shadows,
imagine the reality.
Little hedgehog, enormous whales,
the blue sky,
children in overalls,
all that is loveable.
Let us make love, in our legislative chambers
In the halls of finance.
On a straw mat.
Let the little seedling sprout through the concrete.
