First Line: They who may tell love's wistful tale
Last Line: Yet last till thou art broken.
Subject(s): Love


THEY who may tell love's wistful tale,
Of half its cares are lighten'd;
Their bark is tacking to the gale,
The sever'd cloud is brighten'd.

Love, like the silent stream, is found
Beneath the willows lurking,
The deeper, that it hath no sound
To tell its ceaseless working.

Submit, my heart; thy lot is cast,
I feel its inward token;
I feel this misery will not last,
Yet last till thou art broken.
