Do Thou Speak Now
By Konrad Ferdinand Meyer (1825–1898)
TO thee I wandered daily, dearest wood,
In hazy days of youth, now long gone by:
I would confide thee so much dreamed-of good,
From such true sorrow thou wouldst hear me sigh.
And thee again, my sombre haunt, I seek,        5
The murmur of thy treetops’ mighty sea—
Do thou speak now! For I shall let thee speak!
Joy, pain are dumb. I’ll hearken now to thee.
