Poem by George William Russell


YOU look at me with wan, bright eyes
When in the deeper world I stray:
You fear some hidden ambush lies
In wait to call me, Come away.

What if I see behind the veil
Your starry self beseeching me,
Or at its stern command grow pale,
Let her be free, let her be free? 

George William Russell
