Poem by Edward Bulwer-Lytton
As grains of gold that in the sands Of Lydian waters shine, The welcome sign of mountain lands That veil the silent mine; Thus may the river of my thought, That glideth now to thee, Reveal the wealth as yet unwrought, Which Love has heap'd in me! So strove I to enrich the scroll To thy dear hands consign'd; I thought to leave the lavish soul No golden wish behind! Ah, fool! to think an hour could drain What life can scarce explore-- Enough, if guided by the grain, Thy heart should seek the ore!
