Sara Teasdale, comp. (1884–1933).
The Answering Voice: One Hundred Love Lyrics by Women. 1917.


Juliana Horatia Ewing

YOU ask me what—since we must part—

You shall bring back to me.

Bring back a pure and faithful heart

As true as mine to thee.

You talk of gems from foreign lands,

Of treasure, spoil, and prize.

Ah love! I shall not search your hands

But look into your eyes.
