WHEN there are others by, in vain I dream
To dwell within the orbit of thine eyes,—
Or should there dart a sudden starry gleam,
It hardly lives and lightens ere it dies.

But, sweetheart, how they "swim into my ken"
When we 're alone,—how ruth and trust and pride
Smile in their shining depths! Amen, Amen,—
For here th' eternal mysteries abide!
