LOYALTY

from Go Spell Death Backwards


Love is alone the fire we know
when all the earth is torched with snow,
and, bound to her immortal keeping,
we sow the springtime without sleeping;
for love is what we are in war
to fight for what we were before,
and in her stricture there we see
what are the bonds of loyalty;
while all the sea roves where it will,
and shall be ever roving still.
