A POET writ a song of May
That checked his breath awhile;
He kept it for a summer day,
Then spake with half a smile:

"Oh, little song of purity,
Of mystic to-and-fro,
You are so much a part of me
I dare not let you go."

And so he made a sister-song
With more of cunning art;
But held the first his whole life long
Deep hidden in his heart.
