Richard Francis Burton

Here you will find the Poem Love Is Strong of poet Richard Francis Burton

Love Is Strong

A VIEWLESS thing is the wind, 
 But its strength is mightier far 
Than a phalanxed host in battle line, 
 Than the limbs of a Samson are. 
And a viewless thing is Love, 
 And a name that vanisheth; 
But her strength is the wind?s wild strength above, 
 For she conquers shame and Death.
