Analysis of So longings
There all longings, longings?
Wonderous, wonderous, so straight?
Up to the thrilling hot!
So the desired, oh desired!
Somebody came seeking, seeking?
All so heard, oh not to hear-
All so taken, not to return,
Longings, longings to caress, caress.
All so ringing, ringing
All so playing, playing
Would you so caress, caress
Hear oh, hear oh hear?
So all respect, respect!
Uproar, uproar so hear?
As so stood oh happy happy!
Longings so longings so loud oh came
Not so self, filled, filled
Not so turned, hard hard to swell
There's there's an old old time-
There's there's an old, old vessel
There's there's a goblet-
There's there's so gold oh precious!
