1358. Love Is Strong
 
By Richard Burton
 
 
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,        5
  And a name that vanisheth;
But her strength is the wind’s wild strength above,
  For she conquers shame and Death.
