I know not from what distant time
thou art ever coming nearer to meet me.
Thy sun and stars can never keep thee hidden from me for aye.
 
In many a morning and eve thy footsteps have been heard
and thy messenger has come within my heart and called me in secret.
 
I know not only why today my life is all astir,
and a feeling of tremulous joy is passing through my heart.
 
It is as if the time were come to wind up my work,
and I feel in the air a faint smell of thy sweet presence.
