First Line: The soul is like a homing bird that's sure
Last Line: To reach the native loft, the lonesome mate.
Subject(s): Birds; Love; Soul


THE soul is like a homing bird that's sure
To wing its way to the beloved place;
Above the sea or land, through air more pure
Than mortal breathes, it cleaves the tracts of space,
Steered by a yearning wonderful, elate
To reach the native loft, the lonesome mate.
