Hide Me In Your Heart

by Robert Laurence Binyon

Laurence Binyon

Hide me in your heart, Love,
None but we can know
How with every heart--beat
Love could grow and grow
Till the seed that branched abroad,
How, we could not guess,
Holds us in the shadow
Of its boughs that bless;
And the stars and mountains,
Earth and chanting sea
Seem a mighty music
Sung to you and me;
Time--forgotten meaning,
Poured for us apart,
Murmured out of all the world
To our secret heart.
Hide within my heart, Love.
Never may I know
My heart's beat from your heart's beat,
No, nor throe from throe!
