'I saw you take his kiss!' ''Tis true.'
'O, modesty!' ''Twas strictly kept:
The world, unfathomably fair,
Is duller than a witling's jest.
With not one kiss, or a good-bye,
And the only loveless look the look with which you passed:
And thou rememberest of what toys
We made our joys,
Here, in this little Bay,
Full of tumultuous life and great repose,
With all my will, but much against my heart,
We two now part.
For want of me the world's course will not fail:
When all its work is done, the lie shall rot;
He had put, within his reach,
A box of counters and a red-veined stone,
Perchance we may,
Where now this night is day,
Go thou to East, I West.
We will not say
There's any hope, it is so far away.
