Poem by Mathilde Blind

Brown Eyes

Oh, brown Eyes with long black lashes,
       Young brown Eyes,
Depths of night from which there flashes
   Lightning as of summer skies,
   Beautiful brown Eyes!

In your veiled mysterious splendour
       Passion lies
Sleeping, but with sudden tender
   Dreams that fill with vague surmise
   Beautiful brown Eyes.

All my soul, with yearning shaken,
       Asks in sighsЧ
Who will see your heart awaken,
   Love's divine sunrise
   In those young brown Eyes?
