The Miseducation of Mergatroyd, Love god in Training
by Tai Odunsi
For this is Wisdom; to love, to live,
to take what fate, or the Gods may give.
To ask no question, to make no prayer,
To kiss the lips and caress the hair,
Speed passion's ebb as you greet its flow
To have, - to hold - and - in time, - let go!
—Adela Florence Nicolson
From darkness and from death, Love was born, and with its birth, order and beauty began to banish blind confusion.
