Walt Whitman - The Last Invocation

At the last, tenderly,
From the walls of the powerful fortress'd house,
From the clasp of the knitted locks, from the keep of the well-closed doors,
Let me be wafted.

 

Let me glide noiselessly forth;
With the key of softness unlock the locks--with a whisper,
Set ope the doors O soul.

 

Tenderly--be not impatient,
(Strong is your hold O mortal flesh,
Strong is your hold O love.)
