LAURE, when I look on thee
My heart's the heart of youth;
Thy sweet simplicity
Endowers me with truth:
Then never must we part,—
Thyself my spirit art.

When thy soft eyes on me
With maidenwist are turned,
In their pure depths I see
Where love may best be learned,—
From lesser love, sweetheart,
Thyself my saviour art.

Laure, till I looked on thee
The man I was was no man,
High faith and honour free
Won me when I won woman:
Thou dost redeem my heart,
And still its sovran art.
