SONNET, by                    
First Line: There are a thousand things, my very dear
Last Line: My life itself and my eternity.

There are a thousand things, my very dear,
My heart cries out for me to say to you;
And yet our love is all so strange and new,
I scarce can speak at all when you are near.
So very thoroughly have all things here
Been metamorphosed since the night I knew
That you were mine and all my dreams were true,
I am not sure that I am I, my dear.
And so, Beloved, if I leave unsaid
The things that you had hoped to hear from me, --
If I but press your fingers close instead
Or lay my cheek against your dear dark head, --
Remember this one thing: You are to me
My life itself and my Eternity.
