WHERE SHE IS NOW, by            
First Line: Where she is now, I cannot say
Last Line: But shadows of her lovely hair.
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.


Where she is now, I cannot say --
The world has many a place of light;
Perhaps the sun's eyelashes dance
On hers, to give them both delight.

Or does she sit in some green shade,
And then the air that lies above
Can with a hundred pale blue eyes
Look through the leaves and find my love.

Perhaps she dreams of life with me,
Her cheek upon her finger-tips;
O that I could leap forward now,
Behind her back and, with my lips,

Break through those curls above her nape,
That hover close and lightly there;
To prove if they are substance, or
But shadows of her lovely hair.
