'Listen' has the exact same letters as 'Silent'. Coincidence?

Love, Love by Pedro Calderon de la Barca

on October 8, 2013



What is the glory far above
All else in human life?
Love! Love!
There is no form in which the fire
Of love its traces has impressed not.
Man lives far more in love's desire
Than by life's breath, soon possessed not.
If all that lives nust love or lie,
All shapes on earth, or sea, or sky,
With one consent, to
Heaven cry
That the glory far above
All else in life is--
Love! O, Love!
Thou melancholy thought, which art
So fluttering and so sweet, to thee
When did I give the liberty
Thus to afflict my heart?
What is the cause of this new power
Which doth my fevered being move,
Momently raging more and more?
What subtle pain is kindled now,
Which from my heart doth overflow
Into my senses?
Love! O, Love!
