Love’s Land
By Isabella Valancy Crawford (1850–1887)
OH, Love builds on the azure sea,
  And Love builds on the golden sand,
And Love builds on the rose-winged cloud,
  And sometimes Love builds on the land!
Oh, if Love build on sparkling sea,        5
  And if Love build on golden strand,
And if Love build on rosy cloud,
  To Love these are the solid land!
Oh, Love will build his lily walls,
  And Love his pearly roof will rear,        10
On cloud, or land, or mist, or sea—
  Love’s solid land is everywhere!
