First Line: O could I brew my soul like wine
Last Line: Into a god?
Subject(s): Desire; Hearts; Love


O COULD I brew my soul like wine
To make you strong,
O could I carve you Freedom's sword
Out of my song!

Instil into your mortal flesh
Immortal breath,
Triumphantly to conquer Life
And trample Death.

What starry height of sacrifice
Were left untrod,
So could my true love fashion you
Into a God?
