A Farewell

 Flow down, cold rivulet, to the sea,
 Thy tribute wave deliver:
No more by thee my steps shall be,
 For ever and for ever.
Flow, softly flow, by lawn and lea, A rivulet then a river: Nowhere by thee my steps shall be For ever and for ever.
But here will sigh thine alder tree And here thine aspen shiver; And here by thee will hum the bee, For ever and for ever.
A thousand suns will stream on thee, A thousand moons will quiver; But not by thee my steps shall be, For ever and for ever.
