Zitat – I love you
„I tramped the earth with hopeless beat
Searching in vain for a glimpse of you.
Then heaven thrust you at my very feet–
A lovely angel, too lovely to woo.
My dream has been answered
But my life’s just as bleak.
I’m handcuffed and speechless in your presence divine.
For my heart longs to cry out,
If it only could speak,
‚I love you, my angel. Be mine. Be mine.'“
–Longfellow Deeds‘ poem to ‚Mary Dawson‘ in MR. DEEDS GOES TO TOWN (1936).
