What was the cause ? what was it gave
Such brightness to this scene ? Which made the ware more musical,
The landscape more serene ? Not that my heart at once had caught
An answering, echoing tone— A feeling more poetical
Than it before had known :
Nay, but a hand was clasp'd in mine,
A heart was beating near, That made this scene of loveliness
A robe of splendour wear! An eye was gazing then with mine,
Which kindled at the sight; Making the scene more beautiful,
More glorious and bright.
Hark ! a mystic voice is calling
Soft and low, And a gloom is round me falling—
I must go!
I must go in youth's bright morning,
When my sky is clear; For this strange, strange voice of warning
Now is in my ear.
