Where have you been all my life? "Brampton" she responded...

CONFLUENTS As rivers seek the sea. Much more deep than they, So my soul seeks thee Far away: As running rivers moan On their course alone, So I moan Left alone. As the delicate rose To the sun’s sweet strength Doth himself unclose, Breadth and length; So spreads my heart to thee Unveiled utterly. I to thee Utterly. As morning dew exhales Sunwards pure and free, So my spirit fails After thee: As dew leaves not a trace On the green earth’s face; I, no trace On thy face. Its goal the river knows, Dewdrops find a way, Sunlight cheers the rose In his day: Shall I, lone sorrow past, Find thee at the last? Sorrow past, Thee at last? ~ C. Rossetti
