Full Text of Poem, Open Here

I cannot grasp this love-

that swallows my soul,

envelopes my heart

in a single gulp-

hungry still for giving.

 

I adore this love-

that cups my hand,

makes me tall

with a single touch-

reaching still for charity.

 

I am solen by this love-

whose walls of mercy,

locks of grace

capture me whole-

yearning still for truth.

 

I mistake this love-

that stretches before me,

lies long in the sun-

as finite.
