99. To One Unknown
By Helen Dudley
I HAVE seen the proudest stars
  That wander on through space,
Even the sun and moon,
  But not your face.
I have heard the violin,        5
  The winds and waves rejoice
In endless minstrelsy,
  Yet not your voice.
I have touched the trillium,
  Pale flower of the land,        10
Coral, anemone,
  And not your hand.
I have kissed the shining feet
  Of Twilight lover-wise,
Opened the gates of Dawn—        15
  Oh, not your eyes!
I have dreamed unwonted things,
  Visions that witches brew,
Spoken with images,
  Never with you.        20
