Other verse which seems likely to have been written at this time shows his sense that Adelaide had slipped away from him, though his love, which was always redolent of a sense of death, was now even more insistent. He yearned in one poem to

Reap death from thy live lips in one long kiss,

And look my last into thine eyes and rest:

What sweets had life to me sweeter than this

Swift dying on thy breast?
