I saw his defects

and he saw mine,

but due to a mysterious


produced by the feeling of love,

they appeared to us both

not only forgivable

but also lovable...

          Such a perceptive outlook on love and its power to transmute so that defects can be accepted -- thank you too Laura for the wise quote from a great Italian writer.
