SONNETS OF MANHOOD: 15. ONE NIGHT WITH THEE, by            
First Line: Oh for one night with thee! Shall not the hours
Last Line: Souls with the silent soul of all the sea.


Oh for one night with thee! Shall not the hours
Bring round revenge at last, and angry Fate
Be slain by white hands nigh Love's golden gate?
Shall we not plunge amid the night's dim bowers?
Wilt thou not crown me with unheard-of flowers?—
Lo! the night waxes onward: it grows late:
Rise thou; then falter not, nor turn nor wait:—
The freedom of the trackless dark is ours.

Oh for one night with thee!—one awful night
Amid the stillness of eternity,
Wherein to fold thy soul and body white
In deathless close imprisoning clasp to me,
While all the stars above us mix their bright
Souls with the silent soul of all the sea.
