Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceted. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take pleasure in other peoples sins, but delights in the truth.

Wow. This is very good. I love how it just seems to capture a reader's attention from the first line on this poem. :)
