THE CAPTIVES, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Apart forever dwelt the twain
Last Line: But soul to soul and heart to heart.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Togetherness

APART forever dwelt the twain,
Save for one oft-repeated strain
Wherein what Love alone could say
They learned and lavished day by day.

Strangers in all but misery
And music's hope-sustaining tie,
They lived and loved and died apart,
But soul to soul and heart to heart.
