BY THE WICKET-GATE. I ROSE up, and, following her dark eyes, Felt earth as air beneath me, till I reach'd The wicket-gate, and found her standing
there. There sat we down upon a garden-mound, Two mutually enfolded ; Love, the third, Between us, in the circle of his arms Enwound us both ; and over many a range Of waning lime the grey cathedral towers, Across a hazy glimmer of the mist, Reveals the shining windows: from them
clash'd The bells : we listen’d: with the time we
play'd : We spoke of other things; we coursed about The subject most at heart, more near and
Requiring at her hand the greatest gift,
THE LOVERS' MEETING.
In the glinting of the gloaming,
With its streaks of golden red, With its gathering purple curtains,
With the evening star o'erhead ;
Then, in that time and place, I spoke to her,
Like a silver gem instudded
On a bank of velvet black, Showing in the amber setting,
Of the dying daylight's track,
