I Will Not Let Thee Go

by
 I will not let thee go.
Ends all our month-long love in this? Can it be summed up so, Quit in a single kiss? I will not let thee go.
I will not let thee go.
If thy words' breath could scare thy deeds, As the soft south can blow And toss the feathered seeds, Then might I let thee go.
I will not let thee go.
Had not the great sun seen, I might; Or were he reckoned slow To bring the false to light, Then might I let thee go.
I will not let thee go.
The stars that crowd the summer skies Have watched us so below With all their million eyes, I dare not let thee go.
I will not let thee go.
Have we chid the changeful moon, Now rising late, and now Because she set too soon, And shall I let thee go? I will not let thee go.
Have not the young flowers been content, Plucked ere their buds could blow, To seal our sacrament? I cannot let thee go.
I will not let thee go.
I hold thee by too many bands: Thou sayest farewell, and lo! I have thee by the hands, And will not let thee go.
