34. Bird of Passion
 
By Rollo Britten
 
 
LEAVE the lovely words unsaid;
For another thought is fled
From my dream-entangled mind.
Bird of passion, unenshrined,
I can never phrase thee quite—        5
So I speed thee on thy flight,
Unembodied thus forever,
Floating in a mist that never
May be raised. Thou art one
Of the black-winged birds that run,        10
With uncomprehended night,
Unimpeded down the night.
