The Heart that Knows No Bounds

The heart that knows no bounds
Flies with wings unfettered
Into open skies; it soars and dives
In a generous mood of glee.

The fear of love's surprise
Surges through its veins,
Rushing with full force
To greet the one adored.

Even in defeat it finds
An element of quick delight.
By holding nothing back,
It has no need to feel undone.
