I like for you to be still
I like for you to be still: it is as through you are absent
and you hear me from far away and my voice does not touch you
It seems as through your eyes had flown away
and it seems that a kiss had sealed your mouth
As all things are filled with my soul
your emerge from the things, fill with my soul
You are like my soul, a butterfly of dreams
and you are like the word melancholy
I like for you to be still, and you seem far away
It sounds as though you are lamenting, a butterfly cooing like a dove
And you hear me from far away, and my voice does not reach you
Let me come to be still in your silence
And let me talk to you with your silence
That is bright like a lamp, simple as a ring
You are like the night, with its stillness and constellations
Your silence is that of a star, as remont and candid
I like for you to be still: it is as though you are absent
distant and dull of sorrow, as though you had died
One word then, one smile, is enough
And I'm happy, happy that's not true
The Flight of Youth
There are gains for all our losses.
There are balms for all our pain;
But when youth,the dream,departs
It takes something from our hearts,
And it never comes again.
We are stronger, and are better,
Under manhood’s sterner reign;
Still we feel that something sweet
Following youth, with flying feet,
And will never come again.
Something beautiful is vanished,
And we sigh for it in vain;
We behold it everywhere,
On the earth, and in the air,
But it never comes again!
-------Richard Henry Stoddard
but not the same
but perhaps less
Perhaps not nothing
but not much more
Love her till I die
There is a lady sweet and kind,
Was never a face so pleased my mind;
I did but see her passing by,
And yet, I'll love her till I die.
Never seek to tell thy love,
Love that never told can be;
For the gentle wind doth move
I told my love, I told my love,
I told her all my heart,
Trembling, cold, in ghastly fears---
Ah! She did depart!
Soon after she was gone from me,
A traveller came by,
He took her with a sigh.
