Bond and Free

by
 Love has earth to which she clings
With hills and circling arms about--
Wall within wall to shut fear out.
But Though has need of no such things, For Thought has a pair of dauntless wings.
On snow and sand and turn, I see Where Love has left a printed trace With straining in the world's embrace.
And such is Love and glad to be But Though has shaken his ankles free.
Though cleaves the interstellar gloom And sits in Sirius' disc all night, Till day makes him retrace his flight With smell of burning on every plume, Back past the sun to an earthly room.
His gains in heaven are what they are.
Yet some say Love by being thrall And simply staying possesses all In several beauty that Thought fares far To find fused in another star.
