Love & Truth

Poem By Hugh Cobb

Truth is always truth no matter its disguise.
Somehow the foolish understand
much better than the wise,
That love is all and love is true
and Love is All of God.
And that is all we need to know
till we're buried 'neath the sod!

Witty with undertones of real truth... agreed with Mr McHenry. A fine read.
this poem, made me smile, a big smile, on a grey winter's day. thanks! ! ! u.
Maybe it's me but I feel that there is a little sleight of hand in this piece. There are really two truths at play - truth and The Truth. That is a beautiful line -'the foolish understand much better than the wise.' It captures the former truth well but it remains a leap of faith to make the second. It is still a sharp and thought provoking piece. It certainly made me pause for thought and got it's message across in the first reading, which is a fine art in itself.
Very nice, Hugh...and of course it is the truth! Raynette
