Part Four: Time and Eternity

XLV


MORNS like these we parted;
Noons like these she rose,
Fluttering first, then firmer,
To her fair repose.
  
Never did she lisp it,        5
And ’t was not for me;
She was mute from transport,
I, from agony!
  
Till the evening, nearing,
One the shutters drew—        10
Quick! a sharper rustling!
And this linnet flew!
