Excerpt: ... LXXI 'I HOU earnest unto me last eventide, -I-When the dull pain of absence had well-nigh Made life for me one long-continued sigh, And given me but little hope to hide The hideous thought, that never to my side Wouldst thou again spontaneously fly. Still, some o'erpowering contact bid me try. And lo success my efforts did betide.
