THE OLD CASA, by            
First Line: The moon and I a-tiptoe peer within
Last Line: And I am here to see the last rose fall!
Subject(s): Houses


The moon and I a-tiptoe peer within:
Slim shadows, recross the earthen floor:
What if la señorita as of yore
Dances tonight to muted violin?

Red rose, I climb with you to balcon high!
My gran'-dam wore red roses in her braids
And leaned, just here, to twilight serenades.
Was that the ghost of some fond lover's sigh?

White is the moonlight on adobe wall
That soon is dust—gone with the company
That danced and loved and passed but yesterday.
And I am here to see the last rose fall!
