?. Things lovelier [sung text not yet checked]

You cannot dream
  things lovelier
than the first love
  I had of her.

Nor air is any
  as magic shaken
as her breath in
  the first kiss taken.

And who, in dreaming,
  understands
her hands stretched like
  a blind man's hands?

Open, trembling,
  wise they were -
You cannot dream
  things lovelier.
