First Line: But once I dared to lift my eyes
Last Line: But peace be still with thine.
Alternate Author Name(s): Byron, Lord; Byron, 6th Baron


BUT once I dared to lift my eyes,
To lift my eyes to thee;
And, since that day, beneath the skies,
No other sight they see.

In vain sleep shuts them in the night,
The night grows day to me,
Presenting idly to my sight
What still a dream must be.

A fatal dream -- for many a bar
Divides thy fate from mine;
And still my passions wake and war,
But peace be still with thine.
