Of that so sweet imprisonment

My soul, dearest, is fain -- -

Soft arms that woo me to relent

And woo me to detain.

Ah, could they ever hold me there
Gladly were I a prisoner!


Dearest, through interwoven arms

By love made tremulous,

That night allures me where alarms

Nowise may trouble us;

But sleep to dreamier sleep be wed
Where soul with soul lies prisoned.
