Love? (Or is it love?)

Yes, of course it is love Because every poet, to some extent Is a teacher of love To an unruly class. He takes the children on picnics He does not get angry with those who are late He forgives the idle and the truants And even the ones who do not like roses. Yes, of course it is love Life minus love equals what? Nothing. Love cannot be subtracted from life. Translated from the Turkish by Ozcan Yalim, William Fielder, Dionis Coffin Riggs
