“What is Love?” (Cento)


This poem is about Love. A cento form of poetry, some of which lines are taken from some of my favourite poets- W.B. Yeats,John Keats,Rabindranath Tagore,William Shakespeare and Walter Scott(not in order). To join different lines, there was needed coordination between them, so I composed some lines as a coordinator between them.
The poem is here…below.

Love is an endless Journey,
A thing of soft misnomer,so divine;
A climbing moon upon an empty sky
That remains hidden and fly,
Love,whose month is ever May
That the people always say,
Love,which makes heaven to smile above
For love is heaven and heaven is love,
Love rules the court,the camp and the grove
And men below and saints above,
Although I know all facts above
Even I ask, What is Love?
