Thy Dark Eyes to Mine
source: William Sharp

Thy dark eyes to mine, Eilidh,
Lamps of desire!
O how my soul leaps
Leaps to their fire!

Sure, now, if I in heaven,
Dreaming in bliss,
Heard but [a]1 whisper,
But the lost echo even
Of [one such]2 kiss --

All of the Soul of me
Would leap afar --
If that called me to thee
Aye, I would leap afar
A falling star!
