A LOVE GIFT.
"The treasures of the deep are not so precious
As are the conceal'd comforts of a man
What fire is in mine ears? Can this be true ?
Stand I condemned for pride and scorn so much? Contempt, farewell! and maiden pride, adieu !
No glory lives behind the back of such.
Taming my wild heart to thy loving haud :
To bind our loves up in a holy band :
THE FIRST AVOWAL.
It was no fancy, he had named the name
sweet; Her heart beat high, but pleasant was its
beat. She murmur'd over many a snatch of song That might to her own feelings now belong; She thought upon old histories she had read, And placed herself in each high heroine's
Then woke her lute, oh! there is little
known Of music's power till aided by love's own,
O let not words, the callous shell of thought,
Intrude between thy silent soul and mine! Try not the choicest ever poet wrought;
They all are discord in our life divine.
Smile not thine unbelief; but hear and say All that thou will'st, and then upon my
breast Thy gracious head in silent passion lay,
One little hour; and tell me which is best.
Now let us live our love; in after hours Words shall fit handmaids to sweet me
mory be; But let them not disturb those holier bowers,
The voiceless depths of perfect sympathy.
H. M. MILNES.
