Melmeo Fóle

Ava rice nyare melme,
Melme ya úquétima;
An i milya hwesta leve
Úhlárima, úcénima.

Equétienyes, equétienyes,
órenya *pantie,
*Ririhta, ringa, thoryala.
Ai! Oanties.

Apo ni ehehties,
Lelyando utúlies,
Úhlárima, úcénima:
Siquila se autúlies.

Love's Secret

Never seek to tell thy love,
Love that never told can be;
For the gentle wind doth move
Silently, invisibly.

I told my love, I told my love,
I told her all my heart,
Trembling, cold, in ghastly fears.
Ah! she did depart!

Soon after she was gone from me,
A traveller came by,
Silently, invisibly:
He took her with a sigh.

William Blake

*pantie: adverbial form of panta(-); "openly, sincerely, fully"
*ririhta: freq. of rihta- "jerk, twist"; "shake, tremble" here as short active participle

I probably shouldn't use the perfect as a pluperfect...
