From the poem :

TO TWO SISTERS [MARY MORGAN AND CHARLOTTE BRENT]

A WANDERER'S FAREWELL


To know, to esteem, to love,--and then to part
Makes up life's tale to many a feeling heart;

Alas for some abiding-place of love,
O'er which my spirit, like the mother dove,
Might brood with warming wings!
O fair!
O kind!
Sisters in blood, yet each with each intwined
More close by sisterhood of heart and mind!
Me disinherited in form and face
By nature, and mishap of outward grace;
Who, soul and body, through one guiltless fault
Waste daily with the poison of sad thought,
Me did you soothe, when solace hoped I none!
And as on unthaw'd ice the winter sun...

I love how innocent the preloved state of affairs was back then - to know, to esteem... At least you knew something when you part someone.
