My first friendship with the muse

My days and nights

My days and nights are fast asleep,

Long lost am I in their bosoms wide.

The gloom and pangs of unknown caverns

Within, without my heart abide.


My life-river is hushed in awe,

And all my acts in vain now end.

No mighty Soul to soothe my heart;

My sinking breath without a friend.
