When I Saw You Smile

I saw you smile; And though the sky is clear, The sun still shining bright, Green from sturdy trees by the roadside And grass on the open yards Are still pleasing to the eyes, They have become a little bit clearer A little bit brighter, A little bit greener, more pleasant When I saw you smile. There is a pinch of pain in my heart From your splendor's glow Blessed by Nature To be set above all creation; From the sparkle of evening stars, The deepest blue of the seas most calm, And the sweet, sweet face of angels Combined in one. And there is a pinch of pain in my heart By the knowledge that you Embody all I am in search of Yet could not Should not Possess. Hence in silence I revere When I saw you smile. A passing fancy, Or a secret I shall take to the grave, You are.
