Mine Eyes Were Swift To Know Thee

 MINE eyes were swift to know thee, and my heart
As swift to love.
I did become at once Thine wholly, thine unalterably, thine In honourable service, pure intent, Steadfast excess of love and laughing care: And as she was, so am, and so shall be.
I knew thee helpful, knew thee true, knew thee And Pity bedfellows: I heard thy talk With answerable throbbings.
On the stream, Deep, swift, and clear, the lilies floated; fish Through the shadows ran.
There, thou and I Read Kindness in our eyes and closed the match.
