All I Could

What I want for today?

I sleep all I could

I eat all I could

and be the beast for my age

I sleep further than night

I eat further than might

And let be loved wholly

for love’s sake and burn

the lamp for the night’s hour

I slept no more

I eat no more

But my ways found me

By beloved of all virtue

And now I become again

a soldier for love, the way

the countries play affairs

to be remarked by hullabaloo

I am coming home to you

Forever and ever till the sun

could melt away in ice and

gather but besides a silent

meeting of the soul
