I Heard You, Solemn-sweet Pipes of the Organ

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 mournful;
I heard the perfect Italian tenor, singing at the opera-I heard the soprano in the
midst of the quartet singing;
… 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. 5
