Alone

by
 I’ve listened: and all the sounds I heard 
Were music,—wind, and stream, and bird.
With youth who sang from hill to hill I’ve listened: my heart is hungry still.
I’ve looked: the morning world was green; Bright roofs and towers of town I’ve seen; And stars, wheeling through wingless night.
I’ve looked: and my soul yet longs for light.
I’ve thought: but in my sense survives Only the impulse of those lives That were my making.
Hear me say ‘I’ve thought!’—and darkness hides my day.
