For ever and ever, my darling, yes—Goodness and love are undying;Only the troubles and cares of earthAre winged from the first for flying.Our way we ploughIn the furrow "now;"But after the tilling and growing the sheaf;Soil for the root, but the sun for the leaf—And God keepeth watch forever.
Hell is wherever Love is not, and HeavenIs Love's location. No dogmatic creed,No austere faith based on ignoble fearCan lead thee into realms of joy and peace.Unless the humblest creatures on the earthAre bettered by thy loving sympathyThink not to find a Paradise beyond.ella wheeler wilcox
