Understanding Love poem -- then there's Aether*
Why do you love? What makes the world stop for me?
He doesn't say those words, three little ones,
one by four by three. "I love you" is in his heart,
in his head, but absent from his tongue
Is it because he knows that I love him?
How does he know, I often wonder.
But I know he does, his tender touch,
the look in his eye, his feeling comes to me
It isn't from that touch or the look of eye
It's in the air, over the miles or an inch
Not wind, radio, radar, or TV
Through the aether* we connect, heart to heart

- She wants us to try piecing the Classical Elements into our poetry. The classical elements are: fire, air, water and earth. There is also a rock band named "Earth, Wind, and Fire," (Wikipedia) part of which I used in my title. The other part, 'Aether', was added by Aristotle, as a fifth element, 'aether', as the quintessence, reasoning.
- Later scientists discovered that Vacuum, or Ether, was the carrier for electric waves used for communication from point to point without wires, either line of sight or bouncing, and generally, but not always, included going into the mysterious heavens before returning to earth to be received. See Note below with references.
*Note: Aether, now generally called by 'ether', is the mysterious make up of the heavens, through and by which radio waves and light are transmitted and received, i.e. carried. Vacuum tubes in the old timey radios were also called upon ether, or vacuum, to transfer electricity (Google). See here for a more detailed explanation of ether.
