Love is a powerful thing. It has the ability to warp the way people think and make their hearts melt. Wars have started and ended because of love. Most songs, books, and movies are about love. Whether it’s for a spouse or a family member, it is safe to say that love if one of the most powerful forces on earth. The poems Let me not to the marriage of true minds by William Shakespeare and Love is Strength by George MacDonald and the song Isn’t No Mountain High by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell are all about how strong love can truly be.
The poem Let me not to the marriage of true minds is about how strong love is and how it’s not just a temporary thing. It is something that lasts forever and can’t be broken. The line, “That looks on the tempests and is never shaken” (Shakespeare 6) is a perfect example of the theme. Love can go through the roughest storm where cars are flying, roofs are being ripped off houses and trees are being ripped from the earth and it isn’t even shaken. There is no damage to it whatsoever.
The poem Love is Strength is also an example of how strong love can be. It tells how love along is a great force. It holds people together. The first line of the poem, “Love alone is great in might” (MacDonald 1) is an example of this. It is saying how as long as people have love, they have all the strength they need.
In the song Ain’t No Mountain High they talk about how nothing can separate them. They will always be there for each other. The lyrics “Ain't no mountain high enough, ain't no valley low enough, ain't no river wide enough to keep me from getting to you” show how devoted the two people are to each other. They would do anything to be together and even those obstacles can’t keep them away from each other.
The tone of the poems and the song is hopeful and strong. They all are happy and hopeful that the two people will be together and will stay together because they love each other.
