featuring the Vancouver Chamber Choir: director Jon Washburn
6. Sonnet 22 “Beloved, Say Again”
Beloved say again and yet again
That thou dost love me.
Though the word repeated Should seem a cuckoo-song as thou dost mete it,
Remember, never to the hill and plain
Valley and wood, without here cuckoo-strain
Comes the sweet Spring in all her green, completed.
Beloved! – I, amid the darkness greeted
By a doubtful spirit-voice, in the doubts pain
Cry….speak once more…thou lovest! Who can fear
Too many stars, though each in heaven should roll,,,
Too many flowers, though each should crown the year?
Say thou dost love me, love me, love me…toll
The silver iterance! – only minding, dear,
To love me also in silence, with thy soul.
