At Her Window

 Next Poem          

BEATING Heart! we come again
Where my Love reposes;
This is Mabel's window-pane;
These are Mabel's roses.


Is she nested? Does she kneel
In the twilight stilly,
Lily clad from throat to heel,
She, my virgin Lily?


Soon the wan, the wistful stars,
Fading, will forsake her;
Elves of light, on beamy bars,
Whisper then, and wake her.


Let this friendly pebble plead
At her flowery grating;
If she hear me will she heed?
Mabel, I am waiting.


Mabel will be deck'd anon,
Zoned in bride's apparel;
Happy zone! O hark to yon...
