DEAR heart, what tho' I press the heedless throng
While high the stars shine in their blue retreat,
If so, I unto thee with heart of song
Wend thro' the street.
Dear heart, what tho' my song's inaudible
Unto this ceaseless, surging, heartless throng --
Far from the crowd wilt thou not hear it well
All the night long?
