BECAUSE OF THEE
By Celia Thaxter

MY life has grown so dear to me
    Because of thee!
My maiden with the eyes demure,
And quiet mouth, and forehead pure,
Joy makes a summer in my heart
    Because thou art!

The very winds melodious be
    Because of thee!
The rose is sweeter for thy sake,
The waves in softer music break,
On brighter wings the swallows dart,
    Because thou art!

My sky is swept of shadows free
    Because of thee!
Sorrow and care have lost their sting,
The blossoms glow, the linnets sing,
All things in my delight have part,
    Because thou art!
