I Swore My Love Was Earthbound
I swore my love was earthbound
O that its roots went deep as oak
Weathered and many storm surviving.
I loved her for herself alone and
For her yellow hair — In that I lied
My love was magic and the wonder of it
My love was a fire between us
My love grew up and hid her from my sight
I loved my love, and let my true love pine.
