1.

But once I dared to lift my eyes—
     To lift my eyes to thee;
And since that day, beneath the skies,
     No other sight they see.

2.

In vain sleep shuts them in the night—
     The night grows day to me;
Presenting idly to my sight
     What still a dream must be.

3.

A fatal dream—for many a bar
     Divides thy fate from mine;
And still my passions wake and war,
     But peace be still with thine.

To the Countess of Blessington
Stanzas to a Hindoo Air
