Gerald Massey (Джеральд Масси)


A Maiden's Song


I LOVE! and Love hath given me
         Sweet thoughts to God akin
And oped a living Paradise
         My heart of hearts within:
O from this Eden of my life
         God keep the Serpent Sin!

I love! and into angel-land
         With starry glimpses peer!
I drink in beauty like heaven-wine,
         When One is smiling near!
And there's a Rainbow round my soul
         For every falling tear.

Dear God in heaven! keep without stain
         My bosom's brooding Dove:
O clothe it meet for angel-arms,
         And give it place above!
For there is nothing from the world
         I yearn to take, but Love.
