Take (from Oct. 25, 2017)

I love you, Clarinda,

From deeper than deep,

From lower than low,

From all the way down,

As low as can go.

There, under the thought of me,

Under deep dream,

Under me, deep in me—

Wonder one—thee.

Soul of my soul

That is only to be

You, the sweet truth of me,

Deep and whole.

All of you, darling,

All of you, yes;

All of you calling

All of my best.

All that is me, love,

All l do give,

All for your happiness

Giving to live.

Take me, my sweetheart,

Take what I am;

Take to Clarinda

Her soul-loving man.
