TESTO DEL LIED"Ah ! Could I clasp thee in mine arms"
di (Agnes) Mary (Frances) Robinson (1857-1944)
Ah ! Could I clasp thee in mine arms, And thou not feel me there ; Asleep, and free from vain alarms, Asleep, and unaware !
Ah ! Could I kiss thy pallid cheek, And thou not know me nigh ; Asleep at last, and very meek Who wert as proud as I !
