To you, my heart's Sweet Heart,

Ideal still to me,
My life's far better part-

To you, O wife to be,

Wherever thou mayst wait, By what dear trysting-gate, Thy feet all wet with dew,

Thy youth's clear dew

Dear Muse, so often sought,

Tender and wise and true,

I dedicate anew
My youth's dear book' to you,

Howe'er imperfect wrought

Its Pansies of pure thought, With Rosemary for remembrance,

And Rue, sweet Rue, for you.
