by Sara Teasdale (1884 - 1933)

Deep in the night the cry of a swallow
Language: English 
Deep in the night the cry of a swallow,
      Under the stars he flew,
Keen as pain was his call to follow
      Over the world to you.

Love in my heart is a cry forever
      Lost as the swallow's flight,
Seeking for you and never, never
      Stilled by the stars at night.
