Poems of Pleasure. SURRENDER. TOVE, when we met, twas like two planets meet ing. Strange chaos followed; body, soul, and heart Seemed shaken, thrilled, and startled by that greeting Old ties, old dreams, old aims, all torn apart And wrenched away, left nothing there the while But the great shining glory of your smile. I knew no past; twas all a blurred, bleak waste; I asked no future; twas a blinding glare. I only saw the present: as men taste Some stimulating wine, and lose all care, I tasted Lx)ve selixir, and I seemed Dwelling in some strange land, like one who dreamed.
