361. The Flight
 
By Sara Teasdale
 
 
LOOK back with longing eyes and know that I will follow,
Lift me up in your love as a light wing lifts a swallow,
Let our flight be far in sun or windy rain—
But what if I heard my first love calling me again?
 
Hold me on your heart as the brave sea holds the foam,        5
Take me far away to the hills that hide your home;
Peace shall thatch the roof and love shall latch the door—
But what if I heard my first love calling me once more?
