To Athelia

Oh, your heart has seen the glory
Of the dark which came too soon,
And your eyes have come to rest
Past the fullness of the moon

But my love still sees the maid
So pale and beautiful to tell,
Though my road is not yet traveled
My soul still bears this swell

So until the fates meet us again,
And our heats can cleave as one
Please keep me in your memory
‘Till love itself has won.
