by Louis Untermeyer (1885 - 1977)

Only of thee and me
Language: English 
Available translation(s): ITA
Only of thee and me the night wind sings,
  Only of us the sailors speak at sea,
The earth is filled with wondered whisperings
  Only of thee and me.

Only of thee and me the breakers chant,
  Only of us the stir in bush and tree;
The rain and sunshine tell the eager plant
  Only of thee and me.

Only of thee and me, till all shall fade;
  Only of us the whole world's thoughts can be --
For we are Love, and God Himself is made
  Only of thee and me.
