In Memoriam A.H.H.
voice is on the rolling air;
I hear thee where the waters run;
Thou standest in the rising sun,
in the setting thou art fair.
art thou then? I cannot guess;
But tho’ I seem in star and flower
To feel thee some diffusive power,
do not therefore love thee less:
love involves the love before;
My love is vaster passion now;
Tho’ mix’d with God and Nature thou,
seem to love thee more and more.
off thou art, but ever nigh;
I have thee still, and I rejoice;
I prosper, circled with thy voice;
shall not lose thee tho’ I die.
