TOWARDS DEMOCRACY: PART 3. O THOU WHOSE FORM, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: O thou whose form is ever in my heart
Last Line: Are mine for thee, to lose themselves in thee.
Subject(s): Hearts; Love


O THOU whose form is ever in my heart,
O flesh that holds me pent with terrible force,
Dear limbs and lips that seize upon my life
And in your fire consume it—O sweet love:
Lo all I see—
The clear and sunny hills, the woods, the streams,
The orchards, fields, the lines of poplars tall,
The belfried towns, the river at my feet,
The great blue sky, yea He who stands behind it—
Are mine for thee, to lose themselves in thee.
