Till Death — is narrow Loving —

Till Death — is narrow Loving —
The scantest Heart extant
Will hold you till your privilege
Of Finiteness — be spent —

But He whose loss procures you
Such Destitution that
Your Life too abject for itself
Thenceforward imitate —

Until — Resemblance perfect —
Yourself, for His pursuit
Delight of Nature — abdicate —
Exhibit Love — somewhat —
