Love  poem

 by Rolf A. F. Witzsche


Ode to Love

I love 

Love is joy
in the beauty if another
oh, find this joy
share this love.

I love

Love is the warmth of the sun
that gives life to the universe
a summer's day
a golden glow
your smile.

I love

Love is rich,
we enrich one another
a precious heart touched by another's life
we touch the boundless
to be enriched together.

I love

Love is a garden
of beauty, fragrance, colour and life
we dance in it
we tend it 
love is the purpose for the rose

I love

Love is a mirror
in it we see our humanity
living jewels
sparks in a world of love
what would the world be
without you?

I love you
can I do more

In love we share infinity
our home, our heaven
all the roses in the world
all the sunshine of the universe
as we are one with them.

I love 

Dedicated to my wife Margaret, on December 25th, 2000


It is reported that the composer Jean Sibelius once remarked about his sixth symphony, which is a complex and lyrical work, that those who analyze and theorize about it should not loose sight of the fact that it is, after all, a poem.

The same can be said about love as a poem of life.

Visit the living art garden 
of the invisible shapes that shape us
in the wide landscape of love
