Simply True

Poem:

If we confine love

In a horrible cage,

It would lose its luster

And tarnish with age.

If we value it, yet

Completely possess it,

We would do nothing

But unfairly depress it.

Give it a palace,

A jeweled crown,

Heights without purpose,

It would still be down.

It might not tarry,

Its purpose not wait;

Give it its freedom

Before its too late.

If we hold it secure

In a wrongful belief

That we would be saved

From a handful of grief,

It would be unwise

On our part for there is

The importance of feeling

Its genuine bliss

Love needs its own space,

Nourishment, too,

In a palace or cottage,

Either would do.
