WOMAN'S LOVE AND LIFE, SELECTION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I cannot grasp or believe it
Last Line: In tears of unending rest!


I cannot grasp or believe it,
A dream has bewitched me quite.
Why was it that me of all maidens
He raised to this happiest height?

It seemed as if he had spoken:
I am thine eternally--
It seemed--I still must be dreaming!
It cannot, cannot be.

Oh, let me die thus dreaming,
And resting upon his breast,
My death in ecstasy drinking,
In tears of unending rest!
