Your Love Is Loud

Your love is loud: it shatters drums
And bursts the walls; it shakes, benumbs
The membranes and the tubes and nerves.
It races through canals and swerves
With swimming, soaring ocean thrum.

In majesty it overcomes
The orchestra, the endless hum
Of all that mind and ear preserve:
    Your love is loud.

Now listen as it swoops and plumbs;
Into its rhythm, death succumbs.
Triumphant over minor thirds,
Still throbbing through all twists and curves,
O, all’s made deaf now as it comes:
    Your love is loud.
