Love is not a living thing
It is not born of moonlit night
It does not grow in sun's loving light
Not of Hope springing eternal;
Nor beauty personified,
Or time immortal

Love is not a tangible thing
Not to be felt as summer wind's kiss
Can't be granted with a hopeful wish
It is not the sun, the moon, the sky;
It is not a rose, or the light in your eyes

Love is not a living thing
Not of Hope springing eternal;
Nor beauty personified
Love is not a living thing
For living things have to die

You are so right JML
We quite often hang a picture on LOVE
But it always seems to hang lop sided
One type of Living Love is that which we pass on to our siblings to have it grow
like a vine through our family tree
