Vintage verse – Love Is Enough by William Morris

Love Is Enough

Love is enough: though the World be a-waning,
And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining,
. . . . .Though the sky be too dark for dim eyes to discover
The gold-cups and daisies fair blooming thereunder,
Though the hills be held shadows, and the sea a dark wonder
. . . . .And this day draw a veil over all deeds pass’d over,
Yet their hands shall not tremble, their feet shall not falter;
The void shall not weary, the fear shall not alter
. . . . .These lips and these eyes of the loved and the lover.

by William Morris (1834-1896)
