In a second--
With the lift and turn of a lash,
My soul to hers was beckoned;
I saw the gleam and flash
Of eyes--her own--
O Life! it stirs
Eternity's dormant passion,
In Eternity's olden fashion.


I saw what gleamed!
It pierced my youth!
And now what seemed,
Is changed to truth.


What was it I beheld?
Listen, listen!
The flash of eyes!
Eternal law
Revealed. The rise,
The fall, the ebb, the flow,
The high, the low,
The summer skies,
The sunset glow,
And passion's sweets,
Her fond heart beats!
