Love Is a Growing Thing

“Love Is a Growing Thing,” New Era, Feb. 1972, 51

Love Is a Growing Thing


I know,

Is a growing thing.

If it is well,

It will swell

Like the bud

Of an apple

Bent on harvest.

But even now

Love crowds me.

From my heart out

I am filled

Clear through.

If this eager love

Grows, then—

I must grow too.
