You are my earth and all that earth implies;
The gravity that ballasts me in space,
The air I breathe, the land that stills my cries
For food and shelter against devouring days
You are the earth whose orbit marks my way
And sets north and south, my east and west
You are like final elemental clay
The driven heart must turn to for its rest.
If in your arms that hold me now so near
I lift my keening thoughts to Helicon
As trees cling rooted to the earth uprear
Their quickening leaves and flowers to the sun
You who are earth, o never doubt that I,
Need you no less because I need the sky!
I cannot love you with a love
that outcompares the boundless sea,
For that were false, as no such love
and no such ocean can ever be.
But I can love you with a love
as finite as the wave that dies
And dying holds from crest to crest
the blue skies of everlasting skies.
