Inspired by the following passage from “Love’s Ordeal” by George MacDonald:

But when I find a heart whose blood is wine; —
Whose faith lights up the cold brain’s passionless hour;
Whose love, like unborn rose-bud, will not pine,
But waits the sun and the baptizing shower–

Till then lies hid, and gathers odours fine
To greet the human summer, when its flower
Shall blossom in the heart and soul and brain,
And love and passion be one holy twain–
