TORRENTS, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: I know that if our lives could meet
Last Line: Ran dry so long ago!
Alternate Author Name(s): Duclaux, Madame Emile; Darmesteter, Mary; Robinson, A. Mary F.


I KNOW that if our lives could meet
Like torrents in a sudden tide,
Our souls should send their shining sheet
Of waters far and wide.

But, ah! my dear, the springs of mine
Have never yet begun to flow --
And yours, that were so full and fine,
Ran dry so long ago!
