A LITTLE SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A little song ill worth your while
Last Line: A little song.
Subject(s): Singing & Singers; Songs

A LITTLE song ill worth your while
On which to waste more than a smile,
Alas, I sing, for love is long --
A little song.
Though life be brief and art outlive
What joy or sorrow earth may give,
Time, then, might let the years prolong
A little song.
And it may chance your face will turn
Some day, the singer to discern --
Yea, smile to see who sang so long,
A little song.
