“Hair of sunlight kissing gain
Eyes of deepest summer skies
Voice of haunting pipes and strings
_____! My heart sings and cries!

Slender as the youngling fawn
Gentle as the nestling dove
Hands like whitest, flying swans
_____! Oh, my secret love!

Face and form like breaking day
Spirit pure and bright and fine
Fate so cruel, my dreams to slay
_____… Who can never be mine!”


something nice from a book…
yes, it sings and cries…
