Shall Earth No More Inspire Thee

by Emily Bronte

Shall Earth no more inspire thee,
Thou lonely dreamer now ?
Since passion may not fire thee
Shall nature cease to bow ?
Thy mind is ever moving
In regions dark to thee;
Recall its useless roving -
Come back and dwell with me;
I know my mountain breezes
Enchant annd soothe thee still -
I know my sunshine pleases
Despite thy wayward will;
When day with evening blending
Sinks from the summer sky,
I've seen thy spirit bending
In fond idolotry;
I've watched thee every hour -
I know my mighty sway -
I know my magic power
To drive thy griefs away;
Few hearts to mortal given
On earth so wildly pine
Yet none would ask a Heaven
More like this Earth than thine;
Then let my winds caress thee -
Thy comrade let me be -
Since nought beside can bless thee
Return and dwell with me -
