1908. 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. Oh rapture to my soul, more sweet
to me Than glories to the conqueror of a nation Behold my dry
heart, moistened at the sound Of thy dear voice--none dearer could
there be--And my sad soul, once more within love's station, As thy
fair form doth twine my heart around LXXII YET now I cannot with
impunity Receive the gilded pleasure of thy love. God knoweth with

soul's immunity. Then, though this cup of joy be mixed with sorrow,
Once more must I drink of its poisoned draft, Whilst praying unto
God to purify, With thy return of love to me, the morrow, That
holds the price of that which I have quaffed; And for all time my
spirit satisfy. LXXIII WHILE thou art near to me, my spirit's bride
Art thou. No mortal can possess thee now, Loved inspiration of my
life I trow Thou lovest me while we are side by side. No sorrow
surely will this eve betide. Love's heaven only our two hearts
shall know, And for one hour leave life gladly so, As o'er the
surface of love's lake we glide. Ah, loved one An emotion my heart
swelleth, Even as I worship at thy sacred shrine, Which is the
noblest life hath brought to me; So great, so holy, that no pen
e'er telleth, Till God hath given man a sight of thee, And shown
him one who seemeth half divine LXXI...
