First Line: Floating like a dust moat
Last Line: But little laments in a row.
Subject(s): Gays & Lesbians; Loss; Homoeroticism; Lesbians; Gay Women; Gay Men

Floating like a dust moat,
Softly now a song
Lingers in my heart --
Sad and slow and sometimes still.
I hardly think it worth the singing,
For the music is all dull
With no cool sparkle,
And the words are nothing at all
But little laments in a row.
