I shun the love that lurks in all delight--
The love of thee--and in the blue heaven's height,
And in the dearest passage of a song.
Oh, just beyond the sweetest thoughts that throng
This breast, the thought of thee waits hidden yet bright;
But it must never, never come in sight;
I must stop short of thee the whole day long.
But when sleep comes to close each difficult day,
When night gives pause to the long watch I keep,
And all my bonds I needs must loose apart,

Parted

Farewell to one now silenced quite,
Sent out of hearing, out of sight,--

Though I shall talk with him no more,
A low voice sounds upon the shore.
He must not watch my resting-place,

[Hata Bildir]
