'How Short a While'

How short a while - eternities gone by -
It is since book and candle, half the night,
Consumed the hours..................

Love flows around me with its calm and blessing;
I can but let it take me, and be still,
And know that you beloved, though far from me,
All night are with me - comforting, carressing.'

"There is a power that bound her and a power that will release her. Very soon I will wield that power myself."
