Some feelings are to mortals given With less of earth in them than heaven.
In man's most dark extremity Oft succour dawns from Heaven.
True love 's the gift which God has given To man alone beneath the heaven It is not fantasy's hot fire, Whose wishes soon as granted fly It liveth not in fierce desire, With dead desire it doth not die It is the secret sympathy, The silver link, the silken tie, Which heart to heart and mind to mind In body and in soul can bind.
Tears are the softening showers which cause the seed of heaven to spring up in the human heart.
Love rules the court, the camp, the grove, And men below, and saints above: For love is heaven, and heaven is love.
