Obsession called me across many waters
Although it is not a thing of mortal form
Nor is it pure passion for Earth’s fair-faced daughters
Yet is deep in me — that I can affirm.
Nothing would suffice nor can suffice but
That for which I long and long to long for
Alone – without false pretension to shut
My pilgrim heart from that which I adore.
What else have I to live for
Than That which gave me life before I asked?
