107. Praise
DEAR, they are praising your beauty, 
The grass and the sky: 
The sky in a silence of wonder, 
The grass in a sigh. 
I too would sing for your praising,         5
Dearest, had I 
Speech as the whispering grass, 
Or the silent sky. 
These have an art for the praising 
Beauty so high.  10
Sweet, you are praised in a silence, 
Sung in a sigh.
