709. O that 'twere possible
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

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
