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.
