LOVE'S WAYFARING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Do you remember, love
Last Line: Wand'ring?
Subject(s): Love

DO you remember, love --
How long ago it seems --
When by the pebbled cove,
Our sweet, fair dreams
Took wing?
Alas, how long it is --
What wasted years between;
What untouched hours of bliss;
And unlived dream --
Time's sting!
Were not the high tides sweet!
The sails upon the stream --
The billows' bounding beat,
The sea-gull's scream
And swing.
What murmuring music rose
From zephyr's low-tuned chords,
To which in love's repose
Our hearts made words
To sing.
Ah, sweet, where is Love gone?
To what bourne, east or west,
Shall you and I alone
Bide his behest
