    O winds that pass uncomforted
    Through all the peaceful meads of spring,
    And tell the trees your sorrowing,
    That they must mourn till ye are fled !

    Think ye the Tyrian distance holds
    The crystal of unbroken sleep ?
    That those forgetful purples keep
    No veiled, contentious greens and golds ?

    Half with communicated grief,
    Half that they are not free to pass
    With you across the flickering grass,
    Mourns each inclinèd bough and leaf.

    And I, with soul disquieted,
    Shall find within the haunted spring
    No peace, till your strange sorrowing
    Is down the Tyrian distance fled.
