Never Seek to Tell thy Love
by William Blake

1 Never seek to tell thy love
2 Love that never told can be;
3 For the gentle wind does move
4 Silently, invisibly.

5 I told my love, I told my love,
6 I told her all my heart,
7 Trembling, cold, in ghastly fears--
8 Ah, she doth depart.

9 Soon as she was gone from me
10 A traveller came by
11 Silently, invisibly--
12 O, was no deny.
