To M--

O! I care not that my earthly lot
  Hath little of Earth in it,
  That years of love have been forgot
  In the fever of a minute:

  I heed not that the desolate
  Are happier, sweet, than I,
  But that you meddle with my fate
  Who am a passer by.

  It is not that my founts of bliss
  Are gushing- strange! with tears-
  Or that the thrill of a single kiss
  Hath palsied many years-

  'Tis not that the flowers of twenty springs
  Which have wither'd as they rose
  Lie dead on my heart-strings
  With the weight of an age of snows.

  Not that the grass- O! may it thrive!
  On my grave is growing or grown-
  But that, while I am dead yet alive
  I cannot be, lady, alone.
