The Test
 
Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)
 
 
I HELD her hand, the pledge of bliss,
  Her hand that trembled and withdrew;
She bent her head before my kiss…
  My heart was sure that hers was true.
Now I have told her I must part,        5
  She shakes my hand, she bids adieu,
Nor shuns the kiss. Alas, my heart!
  Hers never was the heart for you.
