Love Is What It Is

A nice little poem about the meaning of love.

What it is

It is madness
says reason
It is what it is
says love

It is unhappiness
says caution
It is nothing but pain
says fear
It has no future
says insight
It is what it is
says love

It is ridiculous
says pride
It is foolish
says caution
It is impossible
says experience
It is what it is
says love

Eric Fried, translated from German by Stuart Hood
