NUANCE IN LOVE, by                    
First Line: That shadowy withdrawal in your smile
Last Line: The slow but certain coming of the snow.
Subject(s): Love - Nature Of


That shadowy withdrawal in your smile
And that faint note of distance in your tone,
Your slight unease when we two are alone
Tell me in thunder what I dread to know.
Though you in kindness might deny awhile
That otherness in you, the heart of love
Is quick to know, although it cannot prove
The slow but certain coming of the snow.
