Thou Art So Near and Yet So Far.

I know an eye so softly bright, that glistens like a star of night;
My soul it draws, with glances kind, to heaven's blue vault, and there I find
Another star as pure and clear as that which mildly sparkles here.

Beloved eye, beloved star, thou art so near and yet so far;
Beloved eye, beloved star, thou art so near And yet so far.

That eye so soft, like violets blue, a treasure bears of morning dew;
And when its light entranced I see, what joy, what pain possesses me;
A world, where I would gladly dwell, is that bright orb I love so well.-Cho.

If closed at last that radiant eye should be, no more the day will dawn for me;
If night should dim its laughing light, oh! then, forever, ever 'twill be night;
Those eyes that brightly, softly shine, for me the sun and moon combine - Cho.
