To Miss A.T.H.

If I could claim the richest gem,

That now lies in the sea;

I’d rather far, than have that pearl,

Have one kind thought from thee;

If all the joys of this bright world,

Were now spread out to me,

And I were told, to make a choice-

I’d ask one thought from thee

Notes on the Text


This poem is the last stanza of a longer work that was published in Godey’s Lady’s Book in January of 1852 under poetry. The longer version can be found here. It is entitled “Think of Me” and is attributed to “Jamie”. The last two lines after the poem appear to be a response from Alice and a further response from Fletcher. He is apparently using the lines of this poem to announce his feelings to Alice.
