Realm of Hatred

The Greeks have not one but six diff’rent ways
Expressive of all that we know of love;
Listen as the Tibetan master says
Five categories his thought makes use of

A mother’s love for her protected son,
The love of a friend his companion for,
The love of God through to which we have won
Are but some of those we are longing for

But we regard so carelessly the heart
In favor of the intellectual
Of this great world in our own little part
We think a single word effectual

Though we have come up with so many more
The realm of hatred and despisal for
