A PERVERSE LOVER (IPSE LOQUITUR), by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: I trust thee from my soul, o mary dear!
Last Line: Will bear upon me then, and I shall love most well!
Subject(s): Love


I trust thee from my soul, O Mary dear!
But, ofttimes when delight has fullest power,
Hope treads too lightly for herself to hear,
And Doubt is ever by until the hour:
I trust thee, Mary, but till thou art mine
Up from thy foot unto thy golden hair,
O let me still misgive thee and repine,
Uncommon doubts spring up with blessings rare!
Thine eyes of purest love give surest sign,
Drooping with fondness, and thy blushes tell
A flitting tale of steadiest truth and zeal;
Yet I will doubt - to make success divine!
A tide of summer dreams with gentlest swell
Will bear upon me then, and I shall love most well!
