Alternate Author Name(s): Moricke, Eduard Friedrich
Subject(s): Love - Beginnings

Is man unto another wholly given,
Though man should will it so?
In watchful nights I sought the word, and still the word was no.

By none possessed, and as a stranger driven
From hearts I could not know --
Lamenting thus, a sudden sign was on my lips, and lo!

I said, 'May God and I not go,
In daily tenderness to grow,
As lovers from this moment even?'

Ah! fearful joy to gather, and bestow, --
A waif of love no more to travel to and fro,
But walk with God on earth, foretasting heaven.
