668. Song
  
HOW many times do I love thee, dear? 
  Tell me how many thoughts there be 
          In the atmosphere 
          Of a new-fall'n year, 
Whose white and sable hours appear         5
  The latest flake of Eternity: 
So many times do I love thee, dear. 
 
How many times do I love again? 
  Tell me how many beads there are 
          In a silver chain  10
          Of evening rain, 
Unravell'd from the tumbling main, 
  And threading the eye of a yellow star: 
So many times do I love again.
