[98] With me? O yes! but not with me alone;
     For in the fair companionship of youth,
Others than I have fondly felt and known
     Thy love and truth;

Have drunk at learning's fount with thee, and seen
     How Doubt's dark depths and Thought's wild surge above
Thy mild-eyed faith, so pure and so serene,
     Soared like a dove.

Enough: what might have been is not; no more
     Shall I return thy grasp, and seek thy glance:
Perchance we meet on heaven's eternal shore;
     Alas! perchance!
