To One Weeping
by Francis Ledwidge
Appears in Songs of Peace

Maiden, these are sacred tears,
Let me not disturb your grief;
Had I but your bosom's fears
I should weep, nor seek relief.


My woe is a silent woe
'Til I give it measured rhyme,
When the blackbird's flute is low
In my heart at singing time.
