Is Love, then, so Simple – Irene Rutherford Mcleod. 1891

IS love, then, so simple my dear?Couple in Love
The opening of a door,
And seeing all things clear?
I did not know before.

I had thought it unrest and desire
Soaring only to fall,
Annihilation and fire:
It is not so at all.

I feel no desperate will,
But I think I understand
Many things, as I sit quite still,
With Eternity in my hand.
