"Of Love" is the fourth song of Ernst Bacon's song cycle Quiet Airs. The song sets the poetry of 17th century English writer Robert Herrick.
by Robert Herrick
How Love came in, I do not know,
Whether by th’ eye, or eare, or no:
Or whether with the soule it came
(At first) infused with the same:
Whether in part ‘tis here or there,
Or, like the soule, whole every where:
This troubles me: but as I well
As any other, this can tell;
That when from hence she does depart,
The out-let then is from the heart.
