Please Tell Me: Is There Some Reward for Loving

Music: Fantasia 5.
By Giovanni Bassano.
Sequenced by Curtis Clark at The Internet Renaissance Band

Please tell me: Is there some reward for loving?
As far as I can see, it can't be pleasure.
Unquenchable, it drinks up all one's leisure,
Lapping the sweet goodness from the stone
As life in all its beauty passes on.
