Francis T. Palgrave, ed. (1824–1897). The Golden Treasury.  1875.
 
Colonel Lovelace
 
C. To Lucasta, Going beyond the Seas
 
    IF to be absent were to be 
        Away from thee; 
      Or that when I am gone 
      You or I were alone; 
    Then, my Lucasta, might I crave         5
Pity from blustering wind or swallowing wave. 
  
    Though seas and land betwixt us both, 
        Our faith and troth, 
      Like separated souls, 
      All time and space controls:  10
    Above the highest sphere we meet 
Unseen, unknown, and greet as Angels greet. 
  
    So then we do anticipate 
        Our after-fate, 
      And are alive i' the skies,  15
      If thus our lips and eyes 
    Can speak like spirits unconfined 
In Heaven, their earthy bodies left behind.
