He who knows Love…


1535525_676806255693789_2147234899_nHe who knows Love–becomes Love, and his eyes
Behold Love in the heart of everyone,
Even the loveless: as the light of the sun
Is one with all it touches. He is wise
With undivided wisdom, for he lies
In Wisdom’s arms. His wanderings are done,
For he has found the Source whence all things run–
The guerdon of the quest, that satisfies.
.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.
He who knows Love becomes Love, and he knows
All beings are himself, twin-born of Love.
Melted in Love’s own fire, his spirit flows
Into all earthly forms, below, above;
He is the breath and glamour of the rose,
He is the benediction of the dove.
– Elsa Barker
(guerdon: reward)

    • I am glad you liked. You probably liked also the last post here, and hopefully the next one to come – with ‘Light’ as the supreme symbol of… everything (including of course who you are).
