How Love Triumphs

Just because Valentine’s Day is coming up, and because really good love poetry can transcend cliche, enjoy this poem —-

Love is a night bent down to be anointed,
A sky turned meadow, and the stars to fireflies.
Love triumphs.
The white and green of love beside a lake,
And the proud majesty of love in tower or balcony;
Love in a garden or in desert untrodden,
Love is our lord and master
We shall pass into the twilight:
Perchance to wake to the dawn of another world.
But love shall stay,
And his finger-marks shall not be erased.

-Kahil Gibran
