TO REMEMBER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: That blue and emerald morning when you came
Last Line: Again I'll love you for an hour or two!
Subject(s): Memory


THAT blue and emerald morning when you came
Upon some minor errand and then stayed
Till noon to talk with me will always claim
A special memory, for you had made
Me love you in the little time it took
For you to smile a bit and carelessly
Ask my opinion of the newest book.
You talked of this or that and did not see
I lost your words in dreaming of your eyes—
Those clear brown pools of amethystine gold—
And quite forgot I meant to be too wise
To give a wanton lad my heart to hold.
When other years bring mornings emerald blue.
Again I'll love you for an hour or two!
