First Line: Consider me a memory, a dream that passed away!
Last Line: Within, without, the vassal heart -- its reasoning who knows?
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Love - Nature Of


Consider me a memory, a dream that passed away;
Or yet a flower that has blown and shattered in a day;
For passion sleeps alas and keeps no vigil with the years
And wakens to no conjuring of orisons or tears.

Consider me a melody that served its simple turn,
Or but the residue of fire that settles in the urn,
For love defies pure reasoning and undeterred flows
Within, without, the vassal heart -- its reasoning who knows?
