< RM > story - Flame of Love

Flame of Love

"I can master it", said the Ax.
His blows fell heavy on the hard, strong
But each blow only made his edge
blunter until he ceased to strike.
"Leave it to me", said the Saw.
With his relentless teeth, he worked
back & forth.
But to his dismay, all of his teeth
were worn out or broken off.
"Ha!" said the Hammer. "I knew you
could not do this.
Let me show you how."
But with the very first blow, his head
flew off, and the steel was unchanged.
"Shall I try?" asked the Flame.
And it curled itself gently around the
strong, hard steel, and embraced it, and
would not let it go.
And the tough steel melted.
There are hearts that are
hard enough to resist:
The forces of wrath,
The fury of pride.
But hard is the heart that
can resist the warm "flame of Love".
