She Has Gone Now


She has gone now, lost to dreaming
High above the vapoured clouds -
As a wispy phantom drifting;
Wrapped within enfolded shrouds

No more words to stir my being
Nor beguile my fretted mind -
Silent as the moon yet fading;
With my life no more to bind

She has gone now, I remaining
E'er to dwell in solitude -
So bereft of thoughts to ponder;
For my heart be now subdued

Shall I reach out, try to touch her
As she floats through ether's void -
Yet I fear I may not grasp her;
Thus my spirit be destroyed

She has gone now, I am pleading
Her return will ne'er be long -
She has gone now, I am waiting;
And in waiting, sing her song

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
