| A place in thy memory, dearest,|
Is all that I claim;
To pause and look back when thou hearest
The sound of my name.

| When, like the rising day,|
Love sends his early ray,
What makes his dawning glow
Changeless through joy and woe?
Only the constant know!

| Sooth t were a pleasant life to lead,|
With nothing in the world to do
But just to blow a shepherds reed,
The silent season thro
And just to drive a flock to feed,
Sheepquiet, fond and few!

And let the world go dine and dress;
For Love hath lowly haunts
If lifes a flower, I choose my own
T is love in Idleness.
