0345 Lyric.1. - Poem by Michael Shepherd

What in the lovely gaining, loves you?
What does the bird that’s flying, bring?
What in the lovely gaining, fills you?
What does the flying-bird sing?

What in the lovely losing, joys you?
What flies as bird on wing?
What lost in loosing, frees you?
What does the loosing-bird bring?
