By all towers and spires of excellent height!
Ah, that vastness of maple and oak trees —
that sunrises and sunsets are of equal beauty!
Their beautiful golden light toil’d in your eyes
Oh Queen of earthed-warmth, in all that is bounty-sings!
And if there is nothing that is unknown
And if there is nothing by song unsung
And if there is nothing unmade by unmade
Then love: in you the birds sing and i’m sung
Then love: that you love you send all to me
Then love: all we need is all the love we need
On all sides I see you and then somehow you see
and your quiet moments dear are my quiet fears
then I aim my feelings and love upon your bow
So easy: to give all that is my love dear
and feel and know (all together now) how much
I stand by your soul and hunt down my afflicted
hours and pull up the anchor and dry my tears
so my love I say why, why, why?
so my love I cannot tell
I don’t know
so my love I say soon
Oh love! so soon!
