Fly swift, my light gazelle,
To her who now lies waking,
To hear thy silver bell
The midnight silence breaking.
And, when thou com’st, with gladsome feet,
Beneath her lattice springing,
Ah, well she’ll know how sweet
The words of love thou’rt bringing.
Yet, no–not words, for they
But half can tell love’s feeling;
Sweet flowers alone can say
What passion fears revealing.
A once bright rose’s withered leaf,
A towering lily broken,–
Oh these may paint a grief
No words could e’er have spoken.
Not such, my gay gazelle,
The wreath thou speedest over
Yon moonlight dale, to tell
My lady how I love her.
And, what to her will sweeter be
Than gems the richest, rarest,–
From Truth’s immortal tree
One fadeless leaf thou bearest.
