Go from me. Yet I feel that I shall stand
it indeed so? If I lay here dead
Barrett Browning (1806-1861), British poet
it indeed so? If I lay here dead,
thou miss any life in losing mine?
would the sun for thee more coldly shine
of grave-damps falling round my head?
marveled, my Beloved, when I read
thought so in the letter. I am thine –
. . . so much to thee? Can I pour thy wine
my hands tremble? Then my soul, instead
dreams of death, resumes life's lower range.
love me, Love! look on me – breathe on me!
brighter ladies do not count it strange,
love, to give up acres and degree,
yield the grave for thy sake, and exchange
near sweet view of heaven, for earth with thee!
