When All The World Is Hidden

When all the world is hidden
And there is only you,
When bosom beats to bosom
As if the heart broke through,

O never speech nor language
Song nor music told
The wonder more than all the world
That in my arms I hold.

Day is a dream abolished,
Sweet madness only true.
The night is burning beauty
Where there is only you.
