Three Songs from ‘Maud’, III
By Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
 
O THAT ’twere possible
After long grief and pain
To find the arms of my true love
Round me once again!…
 
A shadow flits before me,        5
Not thou, but like to thee:
Ah, Christ! that it were possible
For one short hour to see
The souls we loved, that they might tell us
What and where they be!        10
