I EVER said that I could pay high toll
For some dear sake held worthy, utterly;
It was the very hidden pride of me
To rate as gift the greed of my poor soul.
For lo! one day I seemed to near my goal,
And -- "Here," I said, "my gift may given be,
For here is utmost sweet nobility,
And I must love it: it shall have my whole."
But, dear, such gift still savoured of my bliss,
And you would have my love -- for freedom -- lie
In sternest patience till its stress should die;
For love's last proof, forbear, forget the kiss,
And smile, forgetting. Ay, I do not sigh!
Since this you will, my heart must grant you this!
