Karl W. SwartzRebirth

Love that brings no pain,
dreams that do not prosper,
Hell has one design—
deny what Heaven offer.

Love that must depend
on some forgotten tongue:
Mystery defends
the journey not begun.

It was no life that lost
the seed that failed to take.
Solitude expects
the soul will choose to wake.
