LOVE IS THE THING THAT E’ER WILL DO IT

Love.

It is
the only thing
that e’er
will do it,

If instead,
you co-opt fear,
then that will tend
to veer you
clear around it.

So,
when the task
that either you
or others
ask
of you
requires you
to pool your strength
and deep desire of your heart,

pause if you must,
and take a little rest. . .

And then,
with courage,
look ahead,
and take a breath. . .

don’t sweat the science
or the art,

and simply steer
straight through it.
