Subject(s): Love


IN the warm, black mill-pool winking,
The first doubtful star shines blue:
And alone here I lie thinking
O such happy thoughts of you!

Up the porch the roses clamber,
And the flowers we sowed last June;
And the casement of your chamber
Shines between them to the moon.

Look out, Love! fling wide the lattice:
Wind the red rose in your hair,
And the little white clematis
Which I plucked for you to wear:

Or come down, and let me hear you
Singing in the scented grass,
Through tall cowslips nodding near you,
Just to touch you as you pass.

For, where you pass, the air
With warm hints of love grows wise:
You -- the dew on your dim hair,
And the smile in your soft eyes!

From the hayfield comes your brother;
There your sisters stand together,
Singing clear to one another
Through the dark blue summer weather,

And the maid the latch is clinking,
As she lets her lover through:
But alone, Love, I lie thinking
O such tender thoughts of you!
