"YOU MAY CHAIN YOUR LOVE"
You may chain your love with a silver chain,
You may fetter her feet with gold.
But love is little and fleet as rain.
She will be hard to hold.

Love is as light as a thistle seed
That blows across your hand,
And wild she runs as an April weed
Over the unplowed land.

Fashion her cage with jeweled bars
And bind her feet with song,
But love is as free as the flying stars.
You will not hold her long.
