Whence Has She Gone?

To a dream too often I give an ode
A leisurely walk on a lonely road.
A countryscape
A great escape
To wander and ponder my heavy load.

Merry birds sing from their treetop abode,
Speaking of me in unknowable code.
A sunny day
A winding way
Through woods wild and fields fallow and unhoed.

Dost the rest of mankind forsake this place?
And Alas! Through the brush, I spy a face.
Sapphires for eyes
Jewels so wise
Excited am I! I quicken my pace.

Way over yonder! I begin to race.
Alas! Distance and shadows veil her face.
A breeze blowing
Her hair flowing
A wondrous figure of beauty and grace.

At last to this lovely ghost I draw near
A lady so strange, and yet oh so dear
Oh! Such a fright!
She's gone from sight.
Whence has she gone? Eternity, I fear.

And then I awake, soaked with sweat and tear
My bedroom! No singing birds, trees, nor deer.
Oh! Such a night!
Oh! Such a plight!
Whence has she gone? To Nowhere, I must fear.
