The Truth Which Is With Love Amenable (Reprise)

From good intention, we find we have two
Motivations for ordinary speech
I either wish my love confirm to you
Or useful bit of knowledge seek to teach —
Either to comfort and to entertain
Or to enable better living for

Some tell truth in which love doth not remain
Reaping an argument and nothing more
Some tell of love and leave the truth behind
Let by the self but platitudes be quoth —
Indeed, our modern era seems full blind
To any thought we might redeem them both

In sooth, such an achievement certain be,
Among a folk expect each other lie
Name of consideration, politely,
Six times for each ten minutes that go by,
No simple balance easily achieved

But power of that word so great becomes
It usual in silence is received
Its glory the objecting mind benumbs
The while awakening a grateful heart
Which blossoms neath its sweetly warming ray
Allowing it enablement impart
In as smooth and resistanceless a way

As any other way available
To we confined this dim existence to:
The truth which is with love amenable
A statement that there is no answer to
