Because Of You

Because of you my wings are stronger now;
I fly and soar in word and speech and song.
All triumph springs from purely taken vow,
And this of mine is ‘ever to be strong.’
Because of you and my great love for thee
Do all my poet’s tools more brightly shine.
My singing speech becomes a rising sea
That leaps with seeking waves around thy shrine,—
Their white froth joy, their winking bubbles light;
Their splashing sprays glad plays of love for you,
Who are my stainless isle of virtue’s sight.
A bird, a wave, a sky-king made of earth,
Now, more, a man in full man’s might
Who sings the beauty of your sacred worth!
