I Drank Your Beams

"Ah! why, because the dazzling sun
Restored my earth to joy
Have you departed, every one,
And left a desert sky?
I was at peace, and drank your beams
As they were life to me
And revelled in my changeful dreams
Like petrel on the sea.
My lids closed down—yet through their veil
I saw him blazing still;
And bathe in gold the misty dale,
And flash upon the hill."
-Emily Bronte
