    To the Distant One

    AND have I lost thee evermore?

    Hast thou, oh fair one, from me flown?
    Still in mine ear sounds, as of yore,

    Thine ev'ry word, thine ev'ry tone.

    As when at morn the wand'rer's eye

    Attempts to pierce the air in vain,
    When, hidden in the azure sky,

    The lark high o'er him chaunts his strain:

    So do I cast my troubled gaze

    Through bush, through forest, o'er the lea;
    Thou art invoked by all my lays;

    Oh, come then, loved one, back to me!
