Thou Art So Near and Yet So Far

Thou Art So Near -And- Yet So Far.

I know an eye so softly bright,
That glistens like a star of night;
My soul it draws, with glances kind,
To heaven’s blue vault, and there I find
Another star as pure and clear
As that which mildly sparkles here.

That eye so soft, like violets blue,
A treasure bears of morning dew;
And when its light entranc’d I see,
What joy, what pain possesses me?
A world, where I would gladly dwell,
Is that bright orb I love so well.

If clos’d at last that radiant eye should be,
No more the day will dawn for me;
If night should dim its laughing light,
Oh, than for ever, ‘twill be night!—
Those eyes that brightly, softly shine,
For me the Sun and Moon combine.
