First Line: And if my hand should touch you: well, what then?
Last Line: And so I will not reach to you my hand.
Alternate Author Name(s): Gilkyson, Walter, Mrs.
Subject(s): Desire; Hearts; Love


AND if my hand should touch you: well, what then?
Could finger-tips disclose what thought has missed,
Or wake the sleeping sorceries that twist
Your mouth almost to smiling? In all men
I doubt not there is something kept apart,
Not meant to be disturbed. (As in my breast,
Darkly, I cherish the small seed of rest.)
What curious thing is hidden in your heart?

I will not ask. I shall not wonder much,
Save at the peace that broods upon your face,
As if you dwelt secure in a far land,
Remote from thoughts of me, and from my touch;
And this I know is your desired safe place,
And so I will not reach to you my hand.
