CLXXXV. Echoes
HOW sweet the answer Echo makes 
      To Music at night 
When, roused by lute or horn, she wakes, 
And far away o'er lawns and lakes 
      Goes answering light!         5
Yet Love hath echoes truer far 
      And far more sweet 
Than e'er, beneath the moonlight's star, 
Of horn or lute or soft guitar 
      The songs repeat.  10
'Tis when the sigh,—in youth sincere 
      And only then, 
The sigh that's breathed for one to hear— 
Is by that one, that only Dear 
      Breathed back again.  15
