    Like a red lily in the meadow grasses,
    Swayed by the wind and burning in the sunlight
    cherrypickhas quoted2 years ago
    When I have departed,
    Say but this behind me,
    "Love was all her wisdom,
    All her care.
    "Well she kept love's secret,— 5
    Dared and never faltered,—
    Laughed and never doubted
    Love would win.
    "Let the world's rough triumph
    Trample by above her, 10
    She is safe forever
    From all harm.
    "In a land that knows not
    Bitterness nor sorrow,
    She has found out all 15
    Of truth at last."
    cherrypickhas quoted2 years ago
    Tell me what this life means,
    O my prince and lover,
    With the autumn sunlight
    On thy bronze-gold head?
    With thy clear voice sounding 5
    Through the silver twilight,—
    What is the lost secret
    Of the tacit earth?
