To ____. (Heart of my heart!...)

by Rose Terry Cooke

Heart of my heart! stately, and fair, and sweet;
I lay these gathered shells before thy feet.
Lost is their sparkle of the foam and sand
And the keen sunshine glittering on the strand;
Yet still they hold the murmur of their sea:
The deep, pure ocean of my love for thee.
