not to win the dash and charm the crowd nor gain a victor’s kiss, not that you may save yourself from lonely night on lonely night: not for all of this. Nor that passers-by may give you love or those for whom you’ve pined, not that you may earn a wreath and win praises far and wide for your sacrifice. Nor in finding love shall you ask why or put it to the test as though you could not give your love without the promise of return; no, love without this. “More beloving than beloved”, you shall love with all eternity’s great breadth and breath. Love by Love suspired, give love without the thought of love and let Love sustain. “Only when love is a duty, then is love secure”; then is love an act of freedom, un- shackled from our expectations, doubts and fears. So love: and in loving, learn the depth, the height – see scars that were His crown; love given without fear of love or thought of throne, such love lives eternally.
