"Will you miss me,
When I am gone, my sweet,
It will be all of a month or more?"
"Yea, Lord,
As birds the hidden sunshine miss."
But her bruised heart cried: "Miss you, yea,
Though only as a bird set free
Misses the bars of its gilded cage,
When it suddenly rises and starts to soar."
But when five moons had sailed the blue
And no tall shadow had crossed her door,
She missed him more than she dared to dream;
Her heart cried out for the bars of her cage,
And the Lord who would come no more.
