Bliss is but bliss, and breath but breath!

And if, indeed, I fail,

No drearier can prevail!
anahar citerati fjol
IF I can stop one heart from breaking,

And then the brake2 is still.

The smitten rock that gushes,

The trampled steel that springs:

A cheek is always redder

Just where the hectic3 stings!

Mirth is the mail of anguish,

In which it caution arm,

Lest anybody spy the blood

And “You’re hurt” exclaim!
