Richard Watson Gilder (Ричард Уотсон Гилдер)


The New Day. Part 3. 5. “I Will Be Brave for Thee”


I will be brave for thee, dear heart; for thee
     ⁠My boasted bravery forego. I will
     ⁠For thee be wise, or lose my little skill;
⁠     Coward or brave; wise, foolish; bond or free.
No grievous cost in anything I see
⁠     That brings thee bliss, or only keeps thee, still,
     ⁠In painless peace. So Heaven thy cup but fill,
⁠     Be empty mine unto eternity!
Come to me, Love, and let me touch thy face!
⁠     Lean to me, Love; breathe on me thy dear breath!
⁠     Fly from me, Love, to some far hiding-place,
If thy one thought of me or hindereth
     ⁠Or hurteth thy sweet soul—then grant me grace
     ⁠To be forgotten, tho' that grace be death!
