How noteless Men, and Pleiads, st…
Until a sudden sky
Reveals the fact that One is rapt
Forever from the Eye—
Poor little Heart!
Did they forget thee?
Then dinna care! Then dinna care!
Proud little Heart!
The Drop, that wrestles in the Se…
Forgets her own locality—
As I—toward Thee—
She knows herself an incense small…
An ignorance a Sunset
Confer upon the Eye—
I have a King, who does not speak…
So—wondering—thro’ the hours meek
I trudge the day away—
Half glad when it is night, and sl…

The Sun respectful lies -
Not any Trance of industry
These shadows scrutinize -
Whose Allies go no more astray
STEP lightly on this narrow spot…
The broadest land that grows
Is not so ample as the breast
These emerald seams enclose.
Step lofty; for this name is told
