Men Loved Wholly Beyond Wisdom

 Men loved wholly beyond wisdom
Have the staff without the banner.
Like a fire in a dry thicket Rising within women's eyes Is the love men must return.
Heart, so subtle now, and trembling, What a marvel to be wise.
, To love never in this manner! To be quiet in the fern Like a thing gone dead and still, Listening to the prisoned cricket Shake its terrible dissembling Music in the granite hill.
