religion
r=8;G2;l=8;dA8;(ə)n/
noun
1.the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods.

2.a particular system of faith and worship.

3.a pursuit or interest followed with great devotion.

I think you forgot to learn the meaning of religion before you started out with this debate.
Religion is a set of beliefs, it is a devoted pursuit, and it is important to know the various connotations of a world before you use that as the basis of your argument. The poem is definitely a result of devotion and faith and worship. It may or may not comply with your faiths, but that does not have an impact on whether it is an active interest of all or even one of the 7billion people on this entire planet. You can't say that it isnt religious, arbitrarily. What isnt a pursuit to you, doesnt stop it from being a pursuit for everybody else. please stop giving yourself that much importance.
regards.

For it to be religious it need not fall under all heads. the connotation of the word is just as crucial as the word itself. The poetry is dedicated to the beauty of the humans, the beauty of human body, the beauty of nature. And just as it is dedicated to it.Mystical writing is replete with symbolism of love and eros.

pro says
"For it to be religious it need not fall under all heads"
but the fact is you did state those 4 heads as to what religious is
ie
1.the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods.

2.a particular system of faith and worship.

3.a pursuit or interest followed with great devotion.

you canot now just change your definition when it turns out you cant tells why thi work falls under these 4 heads
and say "he connotation of the word is just as crucial as the word itself."
it was you that gave those 4 heads as being religious now it is up to you to show

1) what superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods. is worshiped in this poem

2) tell us what system of belief is followed in this poem
3) what interest is followed with great devotion in this poem

if you cant then i must win the debate

but
I will grant you a way out
you say
"Mystical writing is replete with symbolism of love and eros"
if this poem is mystical in your sense then tell us
1) why this poem is mystical
2) what is the object of love in this poem
3) what is the object of eros in this poem
