SULEIMA TO HER LOVER, by                    
First Line: Thou reck'nest seven heavens; I but one
Last Line: How I love thee


THOU reck'nest seven Heavens; I but one:
And thou art it, Beloved! Voice and hand,
And eye and mouth, are but the angel band
Who minister around that highest throne --
Thy godlike heart. And there I reign supreme,
And choose, at will, the angel who I deem
Will sing the sweetest, words I love to hear --
That short, sweet song, whose echo clear
Will last throughout eternity:
"I love thee!
How I love thee!"
