Ralph Waldo Emerson
Your picture smiles as first it smiled;
The ring you gave is still the same;
Your letter tells, O changing child!
Give me an amulet
That keeps intelligence with you,--
Red when you love, and rosier red,
And when you love not, pale and blue.
Alas! that neither bonds nor vows
Can certify possession;
Torments me still the fear that
Died in its last expression.
