A Neapolitan Canzonet
ONE morning, on the sea-shore as I strayed,
My heart dropped in the sand beside the sea;
I asked of yonder mariners, who said
They saw it in thy bosom,—worn by thee.
And I am come to seek that heart of mine,        5
For I have none, and thou, alas, hast two;
If this be so, dost know what thou shalt do?—
Still keep my heart, and give me, give me thine.
