loosed to strengthen

Tales of Passing Time

Then — with the hurried tread, the upward eye,
The clenchéd hand, the pause of agony,
That listens, starting, lest the step too near
Approach intrusive on that mood of fear:
Then — with each feature working from the heart,
With feelings, loosed to strengthen — not depart,
That rise — convulse — contend — that freeze or glow,
Flush in the cheek, or damp upon the brow;

Lord Byron, The Corsair
