First Line: O love, my love, thou'rt in the passing crowd
Last Line: Thy blood-warm spirit to hearts bitter cold.
Subject(s): Hearts; Love; Solitude; Loneliness


O love, my love, thou 'rt in the passing crowd,
But none shall see thee save the eyes that burn;
O love, my love, thou singest long and loud,
But none shall hear thee save the ears that yearn.
O love, my love, thou 'rt in the solitude
Of foam-crest oceans and the tangled wood,
But none shall know thee in thy changing mood,
Save minds deep-nurtured in the heart's dark flood.
O love, my love, thou 'rt in the blue-girt sky,
And bound in murmurs of the sighing breeze,
But none shall feel thy lilting melody,
Save hearts that quaff thy spirits-passioned lees.
O love, thou wert a beggar shouldst thou hold
Thy blood-warm spirit to hearts bitter cold.
