“let it go -- the
smashed word broken
open vow or
the oath cracked length
wise -- 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."
