TranscriptPERMIT, SIR, this identity Of two, unique, who come to find Themselves in mutuality, True Lovers ardently entwined: If each still turns, in time, to see A figure flaring in the mind, Console them as they come to be That brief Immortal of their kind: Within their Human poverty O hold them closer unconfined, Becoming in your bondage, free, And celebrate them so defined.
