THE DREAM GIRL, by            
First Line: With footfall soft as angel's
Last Line: Ah! Still the air is warm.
Subject(s): Absence; Kisses; Love; Separation; Isolation

WITH footfall soft as angel's
She steps across the room,
Drawing her chair beside me
Here, in the twilight gloom.

The rose within my fingers
I place upon her hair,
Praying that God may banish
The cup of our despair.

She smiles at me in sadness,
I smile at her in tears,
We speak no words, nor have we
Spoken in all these years.

At length the jealous darkness
Spirits away her form,
But where this night I kissed her,
Ah! still the air is warm.
