Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Here you will find the Poem Love of poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox


The longer I live and the more I see 
Of the struggle of souls towards the heights above, 
The stronger this truth comes home to me--- 
That the Universe rests on the shoulders of love, 
A love so limitless, deep, and broad, 
That men have re-named it, and called it God.

And nothing that was ever born or evolved, 
Nothing created by light or force 
But deep in its system there lies dissolved 
A shining drop from the great Love source; 
A shining drop that shall live for aye; 
Though kingdoms may perish and stars decay.
