Song
By John Hall Wheelock
 
ALL my love for my sweet
      I bared one day to her.
Carelessly she took it,
      And like a conqueror
She bowed the neck of my soul        5
      To fit it to her yoke,
And bridled the lips of Song—
      Fear within me awoke!
But Love cried: “Swiftly, swiftly
      Bear her along the road;        10
Beautiful is the goal
      And Beauty is the goad.”
