Fearless if this heart had been
And sang to lift a maiden fall,
Let spur believe, lo, distant angel call,
Lay choices for love to receive;
‘Tis unfair that must be gone,
Depart from where neither will see.
No shadowed love, no more to bear,
No longings to watch close and live;
Enlivened, forbearing but brazen care;
Is mighty on a lonesome gorge
Deeper beneath, now flowing on its own.
Pity days in fading faces; the one to shine
Is darkened deep in caves;
Like an eagle rested on rocks up high,
What desire could it heart convey?
In all the freedom it alights and soar,
Might it wander for a loving stay?
