Ol' Byron's When we parted

Older, nah, Ancient it might be.. But still the poems from the olden days still rock. I stumbled upon this poem, by Lord Byron few days ago and couldnt stop myself thinking about it.. Wonderfully written with a poignant yet appealing choice of words.. Inspires the poet as well as the romantic in me..



When we two parted In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted To sever the years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold, Colder, thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this.

The dew of the morning
Sunk, chill on my brow,
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken,
And light is thy fame;
I hear thy name spoken,
And share in its shame.

They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o'er me...
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee too well..
Long, long shall I rue thee,
Too deeply to tell.
In secret we met
In silence I grieve
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee?
With silence and tears.
