“He prayeth well, who loveth well

Many thanks for reminding me of the following quote:

“He prayeth well, who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast.
He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all.”
Samuel Taylor Coleridge, “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”

I read that about 50 years ago and I had forgotten about that part of the story. But I wonder if it became indelibly printed in my brain. Subliminally. Because I very strongly believe every word of that.

Sent to me by a high school friend that I have kept in touch with. Thanks Mike.
