Sonnet XXXIV

With the same heart, I said, I’ll answer thee

As those, when thou shalt call me by my name–

Lo, the vain promise ! is the same, the same,

Perplexed and ruffled by life’s strategy ?

When called before, I told how hastily

I dropped my flowers or brake off from a game,

To run and answer with the smile that came

At play last moment, and went on with me

Through my obedience. When I answer now,

I drop a grave thought, break from solitude;

Yet still my heart goes to thee–ponder how–

Not as to a single good, but all my good !

Lay thy hand on it, best one, and allow

That no child’s foot could run fast as this blood.
