    But who, alas! can love, and then be wise?
  • Ils Mhas quoted6 years ago
    They had not spoken; but they felt allured,
    As if their souls and lips each other beckon'd,
    Which, being join'd, like swarming bees they clung—
    Their hearts the flowers from whence the honey sprung.
    They were alone, but not alone as they
    Who shut in chambers think it loneliness;
    The silent ocean, and the starlight bay,
    The twilight glow which momently grew less,
    The voiceless sands and dropping caves, that lay
    Around them, made them to each other press,
    As if there were no life beneath the sky
    Save theirs, and that their life could never die.
  • Ils Mhas quoted6 years ago
    And, oh! if e'er I should forget, I swear—
    But that 's impossible, and cannot be—
    Sooner shall this blue ocean melt to air,
    Sooner shall earth resolve itself to sea,
    Than I resign thine image, oh, my fair!
    Or think of any thing excepting thee;
    A mind diseased no remedy can physic
