Love’s Secret
By William Blake (1757–1827)
 
NEVER seek to tell thy love,
  Love that never told can be:
For the gentle wind doth move
  Silently, invisibly.
 
I told my love, I told my love,        5
  I told her all my heart,
Trembling, cold, in ghastly fears:—
  Ah! she did depart.
 
Soon after she was gone from me
  A traveller came by,        10
Silently, invisibly:
  He took her with a sigh.
