Be Not Attached
"Be not attached,"--so runs the great command For those who seek to "Know and Understand." Who sounds the waters of the deeper sea Must first draw up his anchor and go free. But not for me that knowledge. I must wait Until again I enter through Earth's gate. I am not brave enough to sail away To farther seas, and leave this beauteous Bay. Love barnacled, my anchor lies. And, oh, I would not lift it if I could, and go All "unattached," to find those Truths which lie Far out to sea, beneath a lonely sky. The peace of heart and happiness of soul Await the seeker at that farther goal, With love and all its rapture and its pain, Close to the shores of earth I must remain. Not yet would I relinquish my sweet dream, To gain possession of the Fact supreme. I am attached; and well content to stay, Learning such truths as Love may send my way.
