Ella Wheeler Wilcox - Love

The longer I live and the more I see 
Of the struggle of souls towards the heights above, 
The stronger this truth comes home to me--- 
That the Universe rests on the shoulders of love, 
A love so limitless, deep, and broad, 
That men have re-named it, and called it God.

And nothing that was ever born or evolved, 
Nothing created by light or force 
But deep in its system there lies dissolved 
A shining drop from the great Love source; 
A shining drop that shall live for aye; 
Though kingdoms may perish and stars decay.

I was wondering what Ella meant when speaking of love being remanmed by man as being "God." Is she saying that God is love or that love is God or that there is no God but only love?
