6603
    We have been friends together
  In sunshine and in shade.
Since first beneath the chestnut-tree
        In fancy we played
But coldness dwells within thine heart
  A cloud is on thy brow.
We have been friends together,—
  Shall a light word part us now?
          We have been Friends.
6604
    I am listening for the voices
Which I heard in days of old.
          The lonely Harp.
6605
    Love not! love not! ye hopeless sons of clay;
  Hope’s gayest wreaths are made of earthly flowers—
Things that are made to fade and fall away,
  Ere they have blossomed for a few short hours.
          Love not.
6606
    A soldier of the Legion lay dying in Algiers;
There was lack of woman’s nursing, there was dearth of woman’s tears.
          Bingen on the Rhine.
6607
    Too innocent for coquetry, too fond for idle scorning—
Oh friend, I fear the lightest heart makes sometimes heaviest mourning.
          Bingen on the Rhine.
6608
    Every poet hopes that after-times
Shall set some value on his votive lay.
          To the Duchess of Sutherland.
6609
    O Twilight! Spirit that dost render birth
To dim enchantments; melting heaven with earth,
Leaving on craggy hills and running streams
A softness like the atmosphere of dreams.
          The Winter’s Walk.
