True Love
Elizabeth Siddal

1       Farewell, Earl Richard,
2           Tender and brave;
3            Kneeling I kiss
4       The dust from thy grave.

5         Pray for me, Richard,
6              Lying alone
7    With hands pleading earnestly,
8          All in white stone.

9        Soon must I leave thee
10       This sweet summer tide;
11        That other is waiting
12      To claim his pale bride.

13      Soon Iíll return to thee
14         Hopeful and brave,
15        When the dead leaves
16        Blow over thy grave.

17       Then shall they find me
18          Close at thy head
19        Watching or fainting,
20          Sleeping or dead.
