THE GATE OF DELIGHT: 5. IF YOU CALL ME, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: If you call me I will come
Last Line: Fearless what betide.
Subject(s): Desire; Hearts; Love


If you call me I will come
Swifter, O my Love,
Than a trembling forest deer
Or a panting dove,
Swifter than a snake that flies
To the charmer's thrall ...
If you call me I will come
Fearless what befall.

If you call me, I will come
Swifter than desire,
Swifter than the lightning's feet
Shod with plumes of fire.
Life's dark tides may roll between,
Or Death's deep chasms divide—
If you call me I will come
Fearless what betide.
