Think not of it, sweet one, so . . .
by John Keats (November, 1817).

       Think not of it, sweet one, so;—
          Give it not a tear;
       Sigh thou mayst, and bid it go
          Any—any where.

       Do not look so sad, sweet one,—
          Sad and fadingly;
       Shed one drop then,—it is gone—
          O 'twas born to die!

       Still so pale? then, dearest, weep;
          Weep, I'll count the tears,
       And each one shall be a bliss
          For thee in after years.

       Brighter has it left thine eyes
          Than a sunny rill;
       And thy whispering melodies
          Are tenderer still.

       Yet—as all things mourn a while
          At fleeting blisses;
       Let us too; but be our dirge
          A dirge of kisses.
