163. "Is Love, then, so Simple"
 
IS love, then, so simple my dear? 
  The opening of a door, 
And seeing all things clear? 
  I did not know before. 
  
I had thought it unrest and desire         5
  Soaring only to fall, 
Annihilation and fire: 
  It is not so at all. 
  
I feel no desperate will, 
  But I think I understand  10
Many things, as I sit quite still, 
  With Eternity in my hand.
