George William (“A. E.”) Russell (1867–1935).  Collected Poems by A.E.  1913.
 
44. Freedom
 
 
I WILL not follow you, my bird,
  I will not follow you.
I would not breathe a word, my bird,
  To bring thee here anew.
 
I love the free in thee, my bird,        5
  The lure of freedom drew;
The light you fly toward, my bird,
  I fly with thee unto.
 
And there we yet will meet, my bird,
  Though far I go from you        10
Where in the light outpoured, my bird,
  Are love and freedom too.
