let it go


let it go –

the smashed word broken,

open vow, or the oath cracked lengthwise –

let it go

it was sworn to go


let them go –

the truthful liars and the false fair friends

and the boths and neithers –

you must let them go

they were born to go


let all go –

the big, small, middling,

tall, bigger, really the biggest

and all things –

let all go dear


so comes love
