Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each others cup but drink not of one cup.

Give your hearts but not into each others keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each others shadow.

When you are old and gray and full of sleep And nodding by the fire take down this book And slowly read and dream of the soft look Your eyes had once and of their shadows deep; How many loved your moments of glad grace And loved your beauty with love false or true But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you And loved the sorrows of your changing face.
