From The Blossoming of the Solitary Date-tree

Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)
 
FOR 1 never touch of gladness stirs my heart,
But timorously beginning to rejoice
Like a blind Arab, that from sleep doth start
In lonesome tent, I listen for thy voice.
Beloved! ’tis not thine; thou art not there!        5
Then melts the bubble into idle air,
And wishing without hope I restlessly despair.
 
Note 1. Coleridge. From The blossoming of the solitary date-tree. A lament. St. IV. ‘Sibylline Leaves’. [back]
