Presence Of Love by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Poem Text: The Presence Of Love by Samuel Coleridge

And in Life’s noisiest hour,
There whispers still the ceaseless Love of Thee,
The heart’s Self-solace and soliloquy.
______________________You mould my Hopes, you fashion me within ;
And to the leading Love-throb in the Heart
Thro’ all my Being, thro’ my pulses beat ;
You lie in all my many Thoughts, like Light,
Like the fair light of Dawn, or summer Eve
On rippling Stream, or cloud-reflecting Lake.
And looking to the Heaven, that bends above you,
How oft! I bless the Lot, that made me love you.

The Presence Of Love Review

Samuel Taylor Coleridge writes a love poem in his typical old English style. His poems have a ring to it which identifies them as pieces penned by him. This poem is no different.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The theme is common – love. Many writers before and after him have spoken about it. They have composed various kinds of poems – sonnets, epics, ballads, around this theme. Coleridge writes a simple one.

Presence Of Love by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

He praises his lady love. He celebrates her beauty and her beautiful heart. He is amazed by the changes to love brought about in his life.

Standing in the middle of a noisy crowd, he does not fail to hear the whisper of her love. It is like the voice of his own heart, beating within his ribs. His lover makes him hope, she builds him up like clay.

She lives in his thoughts, passing his mind like a light in daytime or, like an ever-flowing stream. He thanks the Heaven for making him fall in love with a woman like her.
