Mitya, do you remember this?
All that I know of love I learned of you, And I know all that lovers can know, Since passionately loving to be loved The subtlety of your wise body moved My senses to a curiosity And your wise heart adorned itself for me. Did you not teach me how to love you, how To win you, how to suffer for you now Since you have made, as long as life endures, My very nerves, my very senses, yours? I suffer for you now with that same skill Of self-consuming ecstasy, whose thrill (May Death some day the thought of it remove!) You gathered form the very hands of Love.

Mitya, do you remember this?

All that I know of love I learned of you,
And I know all that lovers can know,
Since passionately loving to be loved
The subtlety of your wise body moved
My senses to a curiosity
And your wise heart adorned itself for me.
Did you not teach me how to love you, how
To win you, how to suffer for you now
Since you have made, as long as life endures,
My very nerves, my very senses, yours?
I suffer for you now with that same skill
Of self-consuming ecstasy, whose thrill
(May Death some day the thought of it remove!)
You gathered form the very hands of Love.
