True love's the gift which God has givenTo man alone beneath the heaven:It is not fantasy's hot fire,Whose wishes, soon as granted, fly;It liveth not in fierce desire,With dead desire it doth not die;It is the secret sympathy,The silver link, the silken tie,Which heart to heart, and mind to mindIn body and in soul can bind.
