Self Reunciation

Shake thou thy spirit free; first learn to feel
That love doth bring its own exceeding good.
Cry not the “give,” this selfishness of mood,
Will bind thee down with bands of tempered steel.

Renounce thyself; from every loop-hole spurn
The dustiness of care; fresh as thy youth,
Child-like as in thy primal years, oh, learn
The meekness and the majesty of truth!

Thus unto thee shall light arise; thy trust,
Thy reverent lodgement of a holy guest,
Shall bring a blessing to thee; and the dust

Of earthly care no more shall on thee rest.
Thy love pure and eternal thus shall be
Perchance to bloom on earth-most sure in heaven for thee.
