I loved you, loved you, with your unseen eyes
Sweet to my lips in nearnesses of night,
Sweet to my fingers that were trembling light
Upon your face to prove my true surmise
Of eyes that opened, witnessing with mine.
There had not been a sign nor ray of sight,
But only love to prompt my guess aright!...
Then dawn revealed you slowly line by line.
At first I held away your dreaming face
From my face. Till the dark-blue light was keen,
Still, still I held it--though my passion beat
For it. And then all heaven on that place
Came down, since nothing ever to be seen
Again could hide your eyes, so wild, so sweet!
