He Listened

She said to come and love her, since
To love needed no reason —
He listened, as was due her need,
Responding, then, in kind

She said to keep the covenant;
To break it would be treason —
He listened, as was fit and right,
And so kept true in mind

She said: to love, it knows no age,
No distance, and no season —
He listened, with his ears and heart
Although his eyes grew blind

    So keep the windows, open, and
    Let all the light and breeze in —
    And listen, always, to your love,
    And so be
