Song.
When I gaze on thee, I bless thee,
And my spirit would caress thee,
Even while it soars above,
On its wings of faith and love.
As a radiant star thou art
To the heaven of my heart;
For it sees no thing so bright
In its regions of delight.
I will bless thee in my sleep,
When I wake, and when I weep;
In my dreams of bliss divine,
When my soul has been with thine.
Oh! what mysteries belong
To the soul of love and song!
That it sees no other sun
Than its own, its worshipped one.

“Song” by Rosa Emma Collins née Salaman was published in her bound collections of poetry, Poems (1853), p. 65.
