I Know Not How It Is with You
By Robert Louis Stevenson
I KNOW not how it is with you—
  I love the first and last,
The whole field of the present view,
  The whole flow of the past.
One tittle of the things that are,        5
  Nor you should change nor I—
One pebble in our path—one star
  In all our heaven of sky.
Our lives, and every day and hour,
  One sympathy appear:        10
One road, one garden—every flower
  And every bramble dear.
