Stalwart hearts

aheartStrident hearts, stalwart hearts,

Hearts as flighty as a deck of cards, capricious

And whimsical, or hearts as devoted as the proverbial

Doves, sincere as life-long fidelity, sentimental but not

Lost to sentimentality. The heart, a muscle, often stands in

For love. It is represented as an organ of desire, subject

To the arrows that Cupid throws our way, recognizing

The object of our devotion. There is much to be said of

The heart, stalwart or strident, fickle or loyal.
