Last Line: Of joy the whole year round.
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Love; Singing & Singers; Songs

MY song, that's bird-like in its kind,
Is in the mind,
Love -- in the mind;
And in my season I am moved
No more or less from being loved;
No woman's love has power to bring
My song back when I cease to sing;
Nor can she, when my season's strong,
Prevent my mind from song.

But where I feel your woman's part,
Is in the heart,
Love -- in the heart;
For when that bird of mine broods long,
And I'd be sad without my song,
Your love then makes my heart a brook
That dreams in many a quiet nook,
And makes a steady, murmuring sound
Of joy the whole year round.
