LOVE AND TIME, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The longest night of the year, they say
Last Line: Time was nothing and darkness best!
Subject(s): Hearts; Love; Night; Time; Bedtime


THE longest night of the year, they say;
By four of the clock, the dark comes down,
And the hills loom dim and far away,
While the lights wink out in the big, vague town.

And yet, O Love, of the nights I know,
This night was briefest, -- so brief, so blest.
For you came and gave me your heart, and so
Time was nothing and darkness best!
