No Words More Sweet than “Home” and “Love”

Home And Love by Robert William Service

Weekend of Verses

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
When angels talk in Heaven above,
I’m sure they have no words more sweet
Than Home and Love.

Weekend of Verses

Just Home and Love! it’s hard to guess
Which of the two were best to gain;
Home without Love is bitterness;
Love without Home is often pain.

Blue Gingham

No! each alone will seldom do;
Somehow they travel hand and glove:
If you win one you must have two,
Both Home and Love.

And if you’ve both, well then I’m sure
You ought to sing the whole day long;
It doesn’t matter if you’re poor
With these to make divine your song.

Weekend of Verses

And so I praisefully repeat,
When angels talk in Heaven above,
There are no words more simply sweet
Than Home and Love.

Happiness Is...

T.S. Eliot once disparagingly called Robert William Services’s work as “appealing only to the commonest collective emotion”. I would describe it more as “free of literary pretensions’.

I’m not a big fan of poetry. There are many poems that I do love, but I suppose I’m one of those people with ‘common emotion’ and cannot tolerate long-winded poems that only serve as a vanity exercise for the poet. I can appreciate that poetry is a difficult art to master, but that still doesn’t stop me rolling my eyes at a lot of them. But then who am I to say, as of poetry I know nowt, for a poet I am not. 🙂
