10. Her Initials
 
 
UPON a poet’s page I wrote
  Of old two letters of her name;
Part seemed she of the effulgent thought
  Whence that high singer’s rapture came.
—When now I turn the leaf the same        5
  Immortal light illumes the lay
But from the letters of her name
  The radiance has died away.

1869.
