Un-Tameable: Adamastos

Already at the letter U!
Participating in Alphabe-Thursday
For more on the letter U click on the link…

Some time ago, Martha Stewart’s Living Magazine had a snippet about the word Adamastos, just sounds so elegant♫
Wikipedia: from the Greek word for ‘Untamed’  or ‘Untameable’ (Adamastos).
Intrigued, I made up a tune and words, however it is quite repetitive, but fast♪

Adamastos
~
1. Never give up on love
Fragile is it made of
Hunger and thirst for love
Make it your quest to love
Try to persist for love
Reach for it from above
Lessons are learned from love
Do not resist the love
~
2. Adamastos my love
Symbolized as a dove
Endurance will evolve
As you commit to love
World without end, my love
Pursue this goal for love
Lessons are learned from love
Do not resist the love
~
Love will be the final answer
All that’s left when
~
Worlds come crashing around our towering lives.
We think that climbing the wall to success
Is all this life offers us
Never give in and don’t you ever give up on love
I’m counting on you to follow
All of your heart’s desire.
Never give up on love
Fragile it is made of
Adamastos defines the
Dogged response desired
Never give up
Depend on opening up
Your heart to love
One love. All love to love.
~
3. Never give up on love
Fragile is it made of
Hunger and thirst for love
Make it your quest to love
Try to persist for love
Reach for it from above
Lessons are learned from love
Do not resist the love.
~
Adamastos.

  1. This is a strong, moving poem. I love the key word, “Adamastos,” and as I read the poem aloud, the repetitions of the word “love” built and got stronger. This is akin to the old proverb, “The love of money is the root of all evil.” Often shortened to “Money is the root of all evil,” the full proverb has weight: Greed is not love. Loving abundantly, freely, without condition, is the reason we are here! Brava, my dear! Amy
