To —— (Poe, 1829)
by Edgar Allan Poe

3.

TO——

1

The bowers whereat, in dreams, I see
 The wantonest singing birds
Are lips—and all thy melody
 Of lip-begotten words —


2

Thine eyes, in Heaven of heart enshrin'd
 Then desolately fall,
O! God! on my funereal mind
 Like starlight on a pall —


3

Thy heart—thy heart!—I wake and sigh,
 And sleep to dream till day
Of truth that gold can never buy—
 Of the trifles that it may.
