What is Love?

People ask what is Love?

How can it be tamed?

Love can never be tamed.

Love asks nothing of us

But gives us all,

As Love is not of this world.

    A fine write Gold.
    Ahh, I was probably in that clip. Around about that year I sort of gave up following 'Top of the Pops'. It got trashy later on, about 1995 onwards I think!
    Much singing in 1066?

    • Goldfinch60

      Thanks Orchi.
      We sang in 1066 but it was your singing that made the Normans so mad, they wanted to stop that disgusting noise!

      Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not [b]puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
      Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail.

      excerpt from NKJV .. I always thought this was a good description of some of loves facets.

      Your words are true, it is not of this world... but would we be richer if love encompassed this world?

      • Goldfinch60

        That quote is very true da - 'love never fails".

        We may not be richer if love encompassed the world but we would be happier as we helped ALL on our world. "Make love, not war".

        Love is the greatest influence but it can only influence where it touches - great Write Andy

        • Goldfinch60

          Thank you Michael, love touches all but some are too self centred to feel it.

          Baby don't hurt me,
          Don't hurt me,
          No more!

          (sorry, couldn't resist!)

          • Goldfinch60

            Love will never hurt you.

            Short and sweet.

            'As love is not of this world'. I believe it only comes from God.

            • Goldfinch60

              Thank you Lawless, your words may be so true.

            • Claudelle DeLuna

              So very Lovely!
              So true "love is not of this world"
              I agree with Mr.Lawless "it only comes from God" perhaps as proof that we ALL are part of the divinity.

              • Goldfinch60

                Thank you Caudelle. Yes we are all part of Divinity it is such a shame that some do not believe that.

              • MendedFences27

                I, too, believe Love is ethereal, not of this world. Science cannot analyze it, recreate it, or define it. True, eternal Love is a rare event, not something experienced by everyone, only a few.
                You know it if you have it, miss it if you don't.
                Well expressed, Gold. - Phil A.

                • Goldfinch60

                  Thank you Phil, yes love can be a rare event but it cannot be stopped once it happens.

                • Heartwriter

                  Love is shown and felt. By kind deeds and grasping hands. Love you Goldie!

                  • Goldfinch60

                    Thank you Kat you are most kind. Love is there for us all and can be shown in many ways.

                  • BRIAN & ANGELA

                    THANKS ANDY ~ for your eulogy to the FAB FOUR. There is a naivety and raw Scouse ingenuousness in their early work which is why they were such an instant Universal success story ! Later they lost their cohesion because they became too famous individually ! And now their legacy is preserved by the ODD COUPLE ~ Paul & Ringo. Their LOVE SONGS were primitive but genuine ~ AMEN. "Love me Do" complements your poem ! Yours BRIAN & ANGELA ~ Love to JOYCE. Please check the Poem ZIMBABWE and our FUSION on AFRICA Thanks B & A !

                    • Goldfinch60

                      Thank you A & B, The Beatles certainly changed life in the sixties, it helped give freedom to the younger generation, people talk about it now but to actually be part of it was wondrous.

                    • Poetic Dan

                      Be true that! See there my friend
