this night quotes

Many a kiss, both odd and even;
Many a glance, too, has been sent
I wake and feel the fell of dark, not day.
What hours, O what black hours we have spent
This night!
Or if, this night, happiness too is going.
I might be driven to sell your love for peace,
Or trade the memory of this night for food.
Perchance we may,
Where now this night is day,
She speaks!
O, speak again, bright angel, for thou art
Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight,
For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night.
Through throats where many rivers meet, the curlews cry,
Under the conceiving moon, on the high chalk hill,
My heart is as some famine-murdered land
Whence all good things have perished utterly,
This night has been so strange that it seemed
As if the hair stood up on my head.
