To the Man I Married

I

You are my earth and all the earth implies:
The gravity that ballasts me in space,
The air I breathe, the land that stills my cries
For food and shelter against devouring days.
You are the earth whose orbit marks my way
And sets my north and south, my east and west,
You are the final, elemented clay
The driven heart must turn to for its rest.

If in your arms that hold me now so near
I lift my keening thoughts to Helicon
As trees long rooted to the earth uprear
Their quickening leaves and flowers to the sun,
You who are earth, O never doubt that I
Need you no less because I need the sky!

II

I can not love you with a love
That outcompares the boundless sea,
For that were false, as no such love
And no such ocean can ever be.

But I can love you with a love
As finite as the wave that dies
And dying holds from crest to crest
The blue of everlasting skies.

In which the speaker expresses how the man she loves is her foundation and that is what she meant by the first line. In the second line she tells us how the man is the one who keeps her stable. Lastly the third and fourth line basically talks about how this man is the provider of her basic needs in life.
By these two lines the speaker tells us how he gives her a sense of direction.
You are the final, elemental clay
The driven heart must turn to for its rest.

The speaker describes the man in the sense that at the end of the day it’s in his arms that she takes rest.
The speaker is trying to tell the man that yes she is happy where she is but she can’t help but think about Helicon. In other versions Helicon is replaced with ‘another one’. When we say Helicon it can mean ambitions or other goals in life that she can’t do anymore because she’s already married. When referring to it as ‘another one’ it can easily mean God.
She is now trying to explain that yes she may think about these thing or need these things, but that doesn’t lessen the love that she has for him.
In these four lines she explains how her love is finite because there is no such thing as infinite love.
What she does promise though is that she will love him until time would permit her to love him.
