The heaven arched us in, and all we knew
Was gentleness. We walked on happy ways.

Rightly we heeded not: it was not true.
We will not tell the secret--let it keep.
I know not how I thought those days so fair
These being so much fairer, spent with you.

Then, when the sudden tears had ceased to blind Your pansied
