 How does Love speak?
 In the faint flush upon the telltale cheek,
 And in the pallor that succeeds it; by
 The quivering lid of an averted eye--
 The smile that proves the parent to a sigh
 Thus doth Love speak.
 How does Love speak?
 By the uneven heart-throbs, and the freak
 Of bounding pulses that stand still and ache,
 While new emotions, like strange barges, make
 Along vein-channels their disturbing course;
 Still as the dawn, and with the dawn's swift force--
 Thus doth Love speak.
 How does Love speak?
 In the avoidance of that which we seek--
 The sudden silence and reserve when near--
 The eye that glistens with an unshed tear--
 The joy that seems the counterpart of fear,
 As the alarmed heart leaps in the breast,
 And knows, and names, and greets its godlike guest--
 Thus doth Love speak.
 How does Love speak?
 In the proud spirit suddenly grown meek--
 The haughty heart grown humble; in the tender
 And unnamed light that floods the world with splendor;
 In the resemblance which the fond eyes trace
 In all fair things to one beloved face;
 In the shy touch of hands that thrill and tremble;
 In looks and lips that can no more dissemble--
 Thus doth Love speak.
 How does Love speak?
 In the wild words that uttered seem so weak
 They shrink ashamed in silence; in the fire
 Glance strikes with glance, swift flashing high and higher,
 Like lightnings that precede the mighty storm;
 In the deep, soulful stillness; in the warm,
 Impassioned tide that sweeps through throbbing veins,
 Between the shores of keen delights and pains;
 In the embrace where madness melts in bliss,
 And in the convulsive rapture of a kiss--
 Thus doth Love speak.
