The little time of love is all too short;
The time of youth, when burning passions glow
Like brilliant colored poppies in the morn,
Too frail to brave the gentlest winds that blow.

Red-petaled flowers steeped in blissful sleep
That brings brief dreams exquisitely divine;
Such fragile beauty cannot live and feel
The chill and shadow of the sun's decline.

For love has naught to do with grateful shade;
The hybrid flower of friendship may grow there,
And hardily with bloom embroider glades,
Neighbored by cypress trees and maidenhair.

But love, voluptuous love, the sybarite,
Sleeps her opium sleep 'neath ambient beams,
And wakes to dissolution if a cloud
Creeps over the horizon of her dreams.
