    After Many Days

    I wonder if with you, as it is with me,
    If under your slipping words, that easily flow
    About you as a garment, easily,
    Your violent heart beats to and fro!

    Long have I waited, never once confessed,
    Even to myself, how bitter the separation;
    Now, being come again, how make the best

    If I could cast this clothing off from me,
    If I could lift my naked self to you,
    Of if only you would repulse me, a wound would be
    Good; it would let the ache come through.

    But that you hold me still so kindly cold
    Aloof my floating heart will not allow;
    Yea, but I loathe you that you should withhold
    Your pleasure now.
