    What I possess I see afar off lying,
    And what I lost is real and undying.

    Enter FAUST with the POODLE.

    I leave behind me field and meadow
    Veiled in the dusk of holy night,
    Whose ominous and awful shadow
    Awakes the better soul to light.
    To sleep are lulled the wild desires,
    The hand of passion lies at rest;
    The love of man the bosom fires,
    The love of God stirs up the breast.

    Be quiet, poodle! what worrisome fiend hath possest thee,
    Nosing and snuffling so round the door?
    Go behind the stove there and rest thee,
    There's my best pillow—what wouldst thou more?
    As, out on the mountain-paths, frisking and leaping,
    Thou, to amuse us, hast done thy best,
    So now in return lie still in my keeping,
    A quiet, contented, and welcome guest.

    When, in our narrow chamber, nightly,
    The friendly lamp begins to burn,
    Then in the bosom thought beams brightly,
    Homeward the heart will then return.
    Reason once more bids passion ponder,
  • b8357857258has quoted3 years ago
    And this poor heart with rapture filling,
    Reveals to me, by force divine,
    Great Nature's energies around and through me thrilling?
