Though love does not require a word
in many ways it’s voice is heard
in the silence hear it speak
the voice of love is never weak.
Love promotes faith and trust
for each human is a must
without love — an empty shell
to hear it speak, listen well.
Love conveyed without a word
sweeter sounds were never heard.
when there’s love, actions say
love grows stronger day by day.
no greater gift on the earth
no possession of it’s worth.
On love there can’t be put a price
can’t be won with roll of dice
do not love too freely give
too freely given, will not live.
With fleeting glance, or a touch
love can say so very much.
when there’s love between a pair,
silent thoughts they’re prone to share.
Love is as a flowing stream
forever endless does it seem
disappearing round a bend
love, like stream, knows no end
A stream will widen, and will grow
into a river winding slow.
love will widen and grow, too
cherish it when given you
Clutch love gently to your breast
of all gifts, it is the best.

You should publish your poems.
Where are you now? I discovered the dome over my bathroom fan is half missing so that is my next repair.
Thank you, Vicki. You are too kind!!
I’m back in Wisconsin. I’ll be headed back toward Tomball around Mar 20th. Perhaps we can get together this trip. Maybe we could even get in some camping time.
The repairs are just never ending, aren’t they?! Did you have rain coming in, or did you discover it in time?
