FROM THE WORLD BEYOND

 

From the world beyond, the faith I cherish,
My heart sings an eternal strain;
Nevermore my love shall perish,
Nevermore my fire shall wane.

Heaven and earth I touch a-wing,
The storm throbs round in savage strife;
Belovèd maiden, to me cling,
Let us fly to the depths of life.

 

(1905).
