ODOP: High-Minded Love

To ask you only to tred where I can follow—
To seal up that wicked tongue while I’m behind—
To look on the splendor of stars, and think of me,
To take your heart, pulsing with the power that moves the planets,
And it focus it on one flippant object—
No—I’m not so selfish a soul.
