Love is truth-a joy for ever-w

True love never dies it’s black and white in books Love is not love that alters when finds alteration Love stories are fantasies giving joy to the world Ideal love is an object set for lovers, for example Lust may be without love, but love will have both Lust short love eternal, love inner lust outer beauty. Farhad, fell in love with Shirin, the Persian beauty tragic love story looks like a black and white in book Love was sweet but to rid pain was sacrifice for both, Love was true and both never tried to find alteration, Love was only an ideal object to attain, for example The love story of Shirin-Farhad is famous in the world. Story of Orpheus-Eurydice not famous to the world Orpheus fell in love with and married, a nymph beauty But it is ideal love, for the lovers to attain for example Love story is, like Shirin-Farhad, a black & white in book Pure love with one mistake of Orpheus with an alteration Walk ahead, not to look back, followed not advices both. Pocahontas-John Smith of Virginia is a modern example Of Jamestown, Tidewater, story of love and sacrifice both Account of Indian princess and Englishman, in Smith’s book A great story of unfulfilled love, little known to the world Later baptized as Rebecca, married Rolfe, not a real beauty Met Smith in London once, though with a little alteration. Greek legend of Helen and Menelaus is fact and fiction both Helen’s love for Menelaus-Theseus well-known to the world Two versions of this love story point to her love’s alteration “The face that launched a thousand ships” for Helen’s beauty Loved Theseus and tricked him to kidnap her as per a book. Other says,loved Menelaus,loathed Theseus so not exemplary. We find in all love stories of world literature, the alterations Shakespeare never steady, but changing with many examples Romeo-Juliet,Othello-Desdemona,Sebastian-Olivia,all beauties Sonnet 128, proclaims love as promiscuous, and pure love both Pure stories of Marie-Pierre Curie, Queen Victoria-Albert of world Neither a folklore nor a legend but realistic love in world book. We do enjoy the beauty for example in altered love stories though bookish but of both worlds of legend or make believe The beauty in both the records concerned we feel catharsis. **Words chosen are: book, alterations, world, example, both, beauty** ======================================== Fourth place winner in: Contest: Joy to the world sponsored by Deborah Guzzi

wow Ram that's quite a write!! My only concerns are verse 7 which I have asked to be laid out..line 1 2,4; line 2 6,5; line 3 3,1 with the words falling in the body of the line not the end (I know there are other ways to do this but I'd like us all on the same page.) And please only capitalize for the beginning of sentences. I'm sorting today. Light & Love

This was truly interesting and informative, Dr. Ram. I like the way you set the tone for love stories in the first verse and summarized your feelings in the last. The story of Pocahontas and John Smith is one of my favorites for it shows true love's sacrifice. Some historians suggest there is truth behind the Helen of Troy story, so your "fact and fiction" assessment is on target. Many fine examples make this a wonderful sestina for Deb's contest. Wish you success! Love, Carolyn
