First Line: As dawn comes to a glistening forest glade
Last Line: Brought life's supreme completion when you came.


As dawn comes to a glistening forest glade
Where only beauty such as yours inspires
Within the thicket countless feathered choirs
To simulate your voice in their aubade,
While odors of a cherished absentee
Are wafted from the luscious clover blooms
Wherein the bees discover treasure rooms
Replete with nectar as your lips to me;
So did my other senses acquiesce
With feeling in a paean to acclaim
Your presence, herald of that happiness
Too deep for profanation by a name, --
For love, the all of all, with its caress
Brought life's supreme completion when you came.
