WHAT DO I CARE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: What do I care, in the dreams and the languor of spring
Last Line: It is my heart that makes my songs, not I.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Love


What do I care, in the dreams and the languor of spring,
That my songs do not show me at all?
For they are a fragrance, and I am a flint and a fire;
I am an answer, they are only a call.

What do I care -- for love will be over so soon --
Let my heart have its say, and my mind stand idly by.
For my mind is proud, and strong enough to be silent--
It is my heart that makes my songs, not I.
