    With what a deep devotedness of woe
    I wept thy absence--o'er and o'er again
    Thinking of thee, still thee, till thought grew pain,
    And memory, like a drop that, night and day,
    Falls cold and ceaseless, wore my heart away!

And drags at each remove a lengthening chain.

What shall I do with all the days and hours
That must be counted ere I see thy face?
How shall I charm the interval that lowers
Between this time and that sweet time of grace?
