The Tryst
By Charles Henry Lüders (1858–1891)
 
BLOW! winds, and break the blossoms;
  Part! clouds that hide the sun;
For the timid feet of a maiden sweet
  Adown the valley run.
 
The thorn of the wild rose wounds her;        5
  The hem of her skirt is torn
Where the cool gray dew has wet it through
  With the tears of a summer morn.
 
No foot is heard to follow:
  No eye her path may see;        10
There is no ear her steps to hear
  As she hastens unto me.
 
O wild, sweet banks of roses!
  O fragrant fields of dew!
My darling’s kiss is more, I wis,        15
  Than a thousand leagues of you!
