Love seemed an obvious topic for L. The word is cited often. The concept is used to explain almost everything. To defend the good and the bad. The novel and the cliche. The living and the dead.
Dido died for it. Romeo died for the seeds of it. Jesus died with the promise of it.
Dante drew a lifetime of creation from the idea of it. Cervantes established the novel on the back of its folly. It graciously gives poets a second topic to dwell in beyond death.
Take away love, and our earth is a tomb! - Robert Browning, "Fra Lippo Lippi"
