I am with you still in each new dawn.

And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look

But one man loved the pilgrim Soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.
