AS I lay sleeping on my bed,
Before the dawn of day,
I dreamt my only Love was dead—
My only Love alway.

Oh, dreadful anguish of a dream,
Beyond all waking grief!
In all the darkness not a gleam,
Nor in the pang relief.

Yet was I spared the sharpest sword,
The fiercest thrust thereof—
I had forgotten the last word
Wherewith I sped my Love.
