WOULD YOU MISS ME?

BY MARY W. VICAR. 1877

Would you miss the eyes which found
Watching for you, sweet?
Would the coming home be drear,
Which they could not greet?
Miss the hands that strove to be
Faithful in their ministry?

No entiendo la cuarta línea ' No sé a que se refiere ese they que debe
ser a ¨eyes¨ pero entonces a que se refiere el ¨which¨

¿Extrañarías {echarías de menos} los ojos que encontraste {sin sujeto, asumo que es }
vigilando por ti, amor?
¿La llegada a casa sería triste
.... ?
Gracias - cualquiera ayuda se agradece.

Rusty has a spectacular aura aboutRusty has a spectacular aura about
'They' se refiere a los ojos.
Either 'you' or 'were' could be inserted between 'which found' to make the thought more clear.
... los ojos que (descubriste / fueron descubiertos / se descubrieron) ...

'Which' también se refiere a los ojos.
