O Love
By Isabella Valancy Crawford (1850–1887)
O LOVE builds on the azure sea,
  And Love builds on the golden sand,
And Love builds on the rose-winged cloud,
  And sometimes Love builds on the land!
O if Love build on sparkling sea,        5
  And if Love build on golden strand,
And if Love build on rosy cloud,
  To Love these are the solid land!
O Love will build his lily walls,
  And Love his pearly roof will rear        10
On cloud, or land, or mist, or sea—
  Love’s solid land is everywhere!
