Love's bent of mind is not so mean

Love's bent of mind is not so mean
And low like that of vicious greed
How can the hopping fly compete
With regal hawk in flight or speed?

To bring about a change in laws
Of park with ease one can engage
And for the nightingale can make
The nest as irksome as the cage.

If some one is about to set
On journey that is hard and long,
He does not wait for herald's sound,
Like waves that flow without ding dong.

Though college youth appears alive,
Yet he is in the throes of death:
He has no thoughts to call his own
And lives on borrowed Frankish breath.

If you e'er keep before your sight
The nature of your inmost heart
A casual glance of Saintly Guide
With much ease can perform this part.
