„I love thee, I love but thee,
With a love that shall not die
Till the sun grows cold,
And the stars are old“

—  Bayard Taylor, The Poems of Bayard Taylor
Context: I love thee, I love but thee, With a love that shall not die Till the sun grows cold, And the stars are old, And the leaves of the Judgment Book unfold! Context: From the Desert I come to thee On a stallion shod with fire; And the winds are left behind In the speed of my desire. Under thy window I stand, And the midnight hears my cry: I love thee, I love but thee, With a love that shall not die Till the sun grows cold, And the stars are old, And the leaves of the Judgment Book unfold! "Bedouin Song" (1853), in The Poetical Works of Bayard Taylor (1907), p. 69.
