HIS RETURN, by            
First Line: Tis hate, alas, I ought to feel
Last Line: He says we shall not part again.


'TIS hate, alas, I ought to feel--
Such sorrow has he caused my heart,
So full of tears, and wounding smart,
So desolate, so slow to heal;
'Tis hate, alas, I ought to feel!

In the kiss claimed on his return,
When all his soul came back to me,
My own, which fain would hidden be,
Saw how his love began to burn
In the kiss claimed at his return.

He says we shall not part again;
What fear is mingled with delight!
Fate wills our hearts should reunite.
To struggle further is in vain,
He says we shall not part again.
