It had to be. She from his weariness
Discerned a world of unsuspected things;
And though she leapt to meet his swift caress
She feared a trail of dim imaginings.

He drew to him her half-unwilling eyes,
And gazing, learned of wistfulness for joy:
Her singing words gave him desired surprise,
Waking his memory of a lyric boy.

She thought they loved. At any rate they lay
A moment in each other's arms and parted:
He unbereft, and, in his fashion, gay;
She, startled and undone and sorry-hearted.

But if she gave to his satiety
To no avail, what then? It had to be.
