Alternate Author Name(s): Malone, John, Mrs.


O I would sing of love in every tone,
The chant of trees, the murmur of a flower,
The sigh of winds in some deserted bower
Where solitude replaces rapture flown
From summer midnights, the tempestuous groan
Of torrents, or the song of the new hour,
The monotone of a nocturnal shower
Tell me of love in laughter, music, moan.
I know not if we loved for joy or pain
In pale old ages where the yellow flowers
Flaunted in tardy sunshine, or the rain
Flowing and pallid wept through purple hours.
But O Beloved, how sad the springtime seems!
Our souls have seen the passing of our dreams.
