Two querulous voices in love can sing,
two wintry hearts summer can bring
and thaw and tease the ice to wing,
because love changes everything.
And any two, no matter who,
are changed in love, in growing grew,
an education for a few;
because love gives changing its cue.
And no matter what relationship -
from ardour to something still in pip,
from family ties that never slip;
love gives unmouthed words their lips.
Two minds unmatched in knowledge cling
to each other like limpets, entangled string;
and never do they break the sling,because love changes everything.
