Ralph Waldo Emerson - Eros

The sense of the world is short,
Long and various the report,—
To love and be beloved;
Men and gods have not outlearned it,
And how oft soe'er they've turned it,
'Tis not to be improved.

Cleverness or accident?

Struck immediately by the use of the letters e-r-o-s in every line except the third where love appears twice. Pain seems to be taken to get the letters of his own entire name into the short poem(Emerson is Men eros anagram). However I am not sure there is otherwise anything significant or particularly rigorous in this exercise but it does explain the forced strangeness of the cute economy.
