Have, get

Gerard Manley Hopkinsm And freely give away, away what's being furtively removed from you: this land, labor, locked box, bud, breast. Expect no last breath to saunter, much less stay. Learn your past perfect: I have loved - a minim ballast, all you need to bear you off an edge leaving you light and liberal with no weight of worldworth, wish, want, will or prize. I have loved - your proof of perfect past, your dragonfly ambered timeless. Hope for a future presence fitter company than lifelong cost, than clutter. Hold fast to the gem memory. This, if you can, keep.
