(1876-1940 / Freike / Lebanon)

In The Meadow


The shadow of thy curls I see
Upon thy lovely face ;
And just a little wish is mine —
The shadow to embrace.
On thy black and silken tresses,
Ah, one longs to feast the sight ;
But the shadows of their beauty,
Hanging on thy cheeks of light,
From my lips, exact a tribute,
Which I pay here in this meadow :
Blush not, my most winsome maiden ;
I have only kissed the shadow.

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
