Last Line: "love bade me come!"
Subject(s): Love

"Crimson bud, crimson bud,
How come you here,
Daring the upper world,
Blithe without fear?"
"Goldy plume, goldy plume,
Ages ago,
Came to my House of Dark
One through the snow."
"Crimson bud, crimson bud,
What was the word,
Down in the frozen earth,
Sleeping, you heard?"
"Goldy plume, goldy plume,
Deep in the mould,
Somebody whispered me,
'Budkin, be bold!'"
"Crimson bud, crimson bud,
What was his name --
Taught you such valour
And girt you with flame?"
"Ah, fellow wayfarer,"
Whispered the gloom,
"When they shall question, say,
Love bade me come!"
