The Mystery

(1998)

"The Mystery," which is the fourth song of Lori Laitman's song cycle Mystery, sets a poem of Sara Teasdale from her 1920 volume Flame and Shadow.

The Mystery
by Sara Teasdale


Your eyes drink of me,
Love makes them shine,
Your eyes that lean
So close to mine.
We have long been lovers,
We know the range
Of each other's moods
And how they change;
But when we look
At each other so
Then we feel
How little we know;
The spirit eludes us,
Timid and free --
Can I ever know you
Or you know me?
