Round 2: 2 sc in each st around…

Love Persists;

Love, is patient,
Love is kind.
It does not envy, or it does not boast,
It is not proud. It is not rude, and it’s not self-seeking, nor
is it easily angered,
Love keeps no record of any wrong doings…

Love does not delight, nor is it evil, but it rejoices with the truth.
It’s always’ trusts, and its always’ hopes, and Love always’ self-preserves,
a persons self worth.

Not to mention Love is self satisfying…
