If Truth in Hearts That Perish

 If truth in hearts that perish 
Could move the powers on high, 
I think the love I bear you 
Should make you not to die.
Sure, sure, if stedfast meaning, If single thought could save, The world might end to-morrow, You should not see the grave.
This long and sure-set liking, This boundless will to please, --Oh, you should live for ever, If there were help in these.
But now, since all is idle, To this lost heart be kind, Ere to a town you journey Where friends are ill to find.
