Summary

Overall Poem
When we two parted
In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
colder thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
sorrow to this.
The dew of the morning
sunk chill on my brow --
It felt like the warning
of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken
and light is thy fame:
I hear thy name spoken,
and share in its shame.
They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o'er me--
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee too well:
Long, long shall I rue thee,
To deeply to tell.
In secret we met--
In silence I grieve,
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years.
How should I greet thee?
With silence and tears.

Theme
Love is a mistress not easily courted for it shall bring great joy, but when separated it brings great pain and suffering.
In secret we met--
In silence I grieve,
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years.
How should I greet thee?
With silence and tears.
They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o'er me--
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee too well:
Long, long shall I rue thee,
To deeply to tell.
The dew of the morning
sunk chill on my brow --
It felt like the warning
of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken
and light is thy fame:
I hear thy name spoken,
and share in its shame.
When we two parted
In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
colder thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
sorrow to this.
