A Moments Indulgence

Rating: 3.6


I ask for a moment's indulgence to sit by thy side. The works
that I have in hand I will finish afterwards.

Away from the sight of thy face my heart knows no rest nor respite,
and my work becomes an endless toil in a shoreless sea of toil.

Today the summer has come at my window with its sighs and murmurs; and
the bees are plying their minstrelsy at the court of the flowering grove.

Now it is time to sit quite, face to face with thee, and to sing
dedication of life in this silent and overflowing leisure.

The poet's reference to overflowing leisure justifies the title.

!) a wonderful poem about enjoying the presence of the other person and the sultry summer that comes to the window, let the work wait, that will be finished later, what a contrast: the great peacemaker and this lovely poem
