How did we sleep at all
Without burning up?
How did we dream at all
Without burning up?

‘Then did I check
The tears of useless passion
Weaned my soul
From yearning after thine

Sternly denied
Its burning wish to hasten
Down to that tomb
Already more than mine’
‘And even yet
I dare not let it languish
Dare not indulge
In memory’s pain

Once drinking deep
Of that divinest anguish
How could I seek
The empty world again?’
