Light and Dark

Written by: George William Russell | Biography
 | Quotes (22) |
 NOT the soul that’s whitest
 Wakens love the sweetest:
When the heart is lightest
 Oft the charm is fleetest.

While the snow-frail maiden,
 Waits the time of learning,
To the passion laden
 Turn with eager yearning.

While the heart is burning
 Heaven with earth is banded:
To the stars returning
 Go not empty-handed.

Ah, the snow-frail maiden!
 Somehow truth has missed her,
Left the heart unladen
 For its burdened sister.
