FREEDOM, by            
First Line: Take them away - the props, the stays
Last Line: All naked and complete!
Subject(s): Solitude; Loneliness

Take them away—the props, the stays—
Howe'er I plead and groan!
Let me unbind the feet of my soul,
That I may walk alone!

Burn to ashes the broken vows
That friendship built so high.
Loose the bonds of beckoning fame,
That muffled God's far cry!

And fast and faster haste away
Dear Love's departing feet—
So shall I face the loneliness,
All naked and complete!
