The bowers whereat, in dreams, I see
The wantonest singing birds,


Are lips—and all thy melody
Of lip-begotten words—


Thine eyes, in Heaven of heart enshrined
Then desolately fall,
O God! on my funereal mind
Like starlight on a pall—


Thy heart—thy heart!—I wake and sigh,
And sleep to dream till day


Of the truth that gold can never buy—
Of the baubles that it may.
