A Farewell

         
      Flow down, cold rivulet, to the sea,
         Thy tribute wave deliver:
      No more by thee my steps shall be,
         For ever and for ever.

      Flow, softly flow, by lawn and lea,
         A rivulet then a river:
      No where by thee my steps shall be,
         For ever and for ever.

      But here will sigh thine alder tree,
         And here thine aspen shiver;
      And here by thee will hum the bee,
         For ever and for ever.

      A thousand suns will stream on thee,
         A thousand moons will quiver;
      But not by thee my steps shall be,
         For ever and for ever.
