I Heard You, Solemn-Sweet Pipes of the Organ.

Part of the cluster CHILDREN OF ADAM.

I Heard You, Solemn-sweet Pipes of the Organ.

I HEARD you, solemn-sweet pipes of the organ, as last  
 Sunday morn I pass'd the church;
Winds of autumn!—as I walk'd the woods at dusk, I  
 heard your long-stretch'd sighs, up above, so  
I heard the perfect Italian tenor, singing at the opera  
 —I heard the soprano in the midst of the quartet  
…Heart of my love!—you too I heard, murmuring  
 low, through one of the wrists around my head;
Heard the pulse of you, when all was still, ringing little  
 bells last night under my ear.
