Yes, the poet is idealistic in her quest for love. It’s rather natural to fall in love just for a woman’s look, smile or gentle nature. To love for love’s sake (unconditionally), though not impossible, is neither easy nor realistic enough.

Yes the poetess is really idealistic in her quest for love.According to her ,her lover must shower her with unconditional love,he should not get drawn away by her outer beauty but should embrace the beauty of her soul.He should love her for love’s sake.Though in reality its too tough to love one unconditionally but its not impossible
