Like a bass note steady and strong
Love fortifies all creation
Never changing, yet never the same
Love resounds again and again
A constant echo reverberating
Love...Love...Love... all sustaining

Tree, ocean, horse, or hound
Love is recurrent in every sound
Earthquake, fire, wind, and rain
Love is stronger than anything
Creation groans patiently waiting
Love...Love...Love...conciliating

We may struggle from day to day
Love calls out ďCome this way!Ē
Working to earn praise and affection
Love waits for us to cease the striving
Only when quiet can we hear
Love...Love...Love...casting out fear

While days grow dark and skies turn grey
Love shines forth to illuminate
Through tragedy, triumph, life and death
Love continues; itís in our breath
For God so loved the world He gave
Love...Love...Love...conquered the grave

One note underpinning all
Love strong and clear echoing on
One note, Godís message in full
Love covers all; love will endure
One note ringing eternally
Love...Love...Love...drawing you and me

I enjoyed your poem. I've not written much poetry, so I wouldn't dare try to red ink yours. This line made me pause... "One note, Godís message in full"

Beautiful. Keep writing.

I enjoyed your lovely poem.

I liked the flow and the rythm of this. You can just hear the one note playing over and over: love, love, love...Good job!

a very meaningful poem showing how God's love permeates into all of his creation, even into our sinful world and lives.

I think this is a lovely poem with a very clear message. And I like the way you incorporated the topic. All nicely done.

Ahh, love...my favorite topic to write about. I don't think there are enough words in the English language to fully describe God's awesome, all encompassing love. In short, I loved it.
