Till Hymen brought his love-delighted hour,
There dwelt no joy in Eden's rosy bower!
In vain the viewless seraph lingering there,
At starry midnight charmed the silent air;
In vain, to sooth the solitary shade
Aerial notes in mingling measure play'd;
The summer wind that shook the spangled tree,
The whispering wave, the murmur of the bee.--
Still slowly pass'd the melancholy days,
And still the stranger wist not where to stray.
The world was sad!--the garden was a wild!
And man, the hermit, sighed--till woman smiled!  May 31, 1849
