In Memoriam A.H.H.

         
            CXXX.
       
      Thy voice is on the rolling air;
          I hear thee where the waters run;
          Thou standest in the rising sun,
      And in the setting thou art fair.

      What art thou then? I cannot guess;
          But tho’ I seem in star and flower
          To feel thee some diffusive power,
      I do not therefore love thee less:

      My love involves the love before;
          My love is vaster passion now;
          Tho’ mix’d with God and Nature thou,
      I seem to love thee more and more.

      Far off thou art, but ever nigh;
          I have thee still, and I rejoice;
          I prosper, circled with thy voice;
      I shall not lose thee tho’ I die.
