Love Is

Love is so many things as you will see in this poem by J.J. Thorne. As you will discover by reading these verses, love truly is the key to a happy life.

Love Is
Poet: J.J. Thorne

A life without the bonds of love.
Its pleasure would be none;
'Tis that warm and tender spirit,
That joins two hearts as one.

True love is like the little lambs,
Playing in the shepherd's fold;
So strong a tie and tender feeling,
That all is never told.

Love is an inward blessing,
That makes a tender heart;
It makes our union sweet and dear,
And grieves us when we part.

Love is the key of happiness,
It was given from above;
The world would wag in the heathenism,
Were it not for love.

Love is a rose of joy,
It blooms without strife;
It beautifies a home of honor;
It makes a gentle life.

Love is kind, warm and tender,
Above slander and scorn;
It refreshes our hearts with sympathy,
As the dew drops of the morn.

Love unites us friends together,
Our union sweet and dear ;
It joins our hope and hearts together,
It drives away the tear.

Love is a key to our heart.
It makes our lives complete;
It joins our hearts in fraternal love,
Arid happy when we meet.

Love is the fruit of trouble and pleasure,
It makes a tender heart;
It makes us happy and sad together.
It grieves us when we part.

Love is a link that joins us together,
It buries us when we die;
It unites our hearts and hands together,
'Til side beside we lie.

Love is the greatest of nature's blessings,
Complete without a blunder;
Ti's a holy divine cause,
Man cannot put asunder.

Love is a stream that gently flows.
It refreshes day by day,
Its waters replenishes, strengthens and grows,
A care and devotion that never decay.

Love is with a tender heart.
As the spring showers of May;
It forgives others of their wrongs.
And washes them away.

Love makes a life of sympathy,
A warm and tender breast;
A quiet and friendly neighborhood,
A happy home of rest.
