Love Gave Up

Dark and light spoke fragrant things,
Gardens gathered strength by night;
Love, though fragile, sprouted wings,
Crying out as it took flight.
Fighting chance? Oh, love had none!
Hearing that a storm would pass,
Blotting out the noonday sun,
Love gave up—alack! alas!

  1. I love the imagery in the first verse and the second made me think oh no – where would we be without love

  2. As beastly as it sounds, love does seem to abandons us sometimes oh the songs that render this situation

    As for me give me unfailing LOVE

    happy Sunday


  3. Oh for a love made of sterner stuff!!!

  4. Let’s hope love can be unfailing and true ❤❤❤

  5. Sometimes love gives up on us, sometimes we on love. My favourite maxim: All you need is love – and a dog!

  6. Love gives up way too often I think

  7. “Dark and light spoke fragrant things” …what a brilliant line…and reason not to give up. 🙂

  8. I love that image of love sprouting wings.Even though it’s sad,I suppose that’s life sometimes.

  9. Some days (and nights) even love has no choice but to give up (at least for a bit) after a pounding.

      Thankfully those days and nights are few.

  10. Alas, alack, love cuts and runs too often.

  11. Is there more to the story?!?

  12. Alas, sometimes all love can do is give up. But not without a fight.

  13. Surely Love could shelter under a tree while the rain(tears) are falling. Love doesn’t back off easily in my book!

  14. Profound for today. That is not unusual for you, though.
    If love gives up this life will end
    Your love shines through, my blogging friend!
