Give All To Love

GIVE all to love;
Obey thy heart;
Friends kindred days 
Estate good fame 
Plans credit and the Muse¡
Nothing refuse.

'Tis a brave master;
Let it have scope:
Follow it utterly 
Hope beyond hope:
High and more high
It dives into noon 
With wing unspent 
Untold intent;
But it is a god
Knows its own path 
And the outlets of the sky.

It was never for the mean;
It requireth courage stout 
Souls above doubt  
Valour unbending:
Such 'twill reward;
They shall return
More than they were 
And ever ascending.

Leave all for love;
Yet hear me yet 
One word more thy heart behoved 
One pulse more of firm endeavour;
Keep thee to-day
To-morrow for ever 
Free as an Arab
Of thy beloved.

Cling with life to the maid;
But when the surprise
First vague shadow of surmise 
Flits across her bosom young 
Of a joy apart from thee 
Free be she fancy-free;
Nor thou detain her vesture's hem
Nor the palest rose she flung
From her summer diadem.

Though thou loved her as thyself 
As a self of purer clay;
Though her parting dims the day
Stealing grace from all alive;
Heartily know 
When half-gods go
The gods arrive.
