The Abbot Circle
The silence of dawn crept up the hill,
Even the thrushes and robins were still.
And then I slowly saw you pass
As clear as in a looking-glass.
The glory of dawn was in your face
And your footsteps light left never a trace
Upon the daisies and violets blue.
I gazed at the dawn, and the wind, and you,
And my heart was very light and gay.
Ah! but that was yesterday
VVhen the whispering wind, and dawn, and you
Together to me were lovely and true.
VVith a quiet, nameless ecstasy
Throughout a long eternity
I dreamed away aimillion years
Of love and youth and tender tears.
How fair you were - how fair and kind!
You, and dawn, and the whispering wind!
And in one moment's loveliness
I drank the sweet - all bitterness
Fled with the night, and swiftly was gone,
When you, and the whispering wind, and dawn
VVere one together, and life was ours
Among the birds and summer flowers!
But the moment passed, as moments do,
And the whispering wind, and dawn, and you
Fled swiftly on light feet away
Into the realms of yesterday.
But oh! why must such visions pass
Like rainbow bubbles - to nothingness?
Instead of the vision passing by,
Instead, oh! fate, please let me die,
Swiftly die upon this hill,
Vliith the vision in my glad heart still!
