TO REMEMBER, by LEXIE DEAN ROBERTSON 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!
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!
