First Line: I weary of these noisy nights

Subject(s): Love


I weary of these noisy nights,
Of shallow jest and coarse "good-cheer,"
Of jazzy sounds and brilliant lights.
Come, Love, let us away from here.

Let us lay down this heavy load;
And, side by side, far from the town,
Drive on some lovely country road;
And, wondering, watch the sun go down.

What time is left to us, come, Love.
The woods, the fields shall make us whole;
The nightly pageantry above
Our little world, keep sweet our soul.

No peace this city's madness yields --
A tawdry world in cheap veneer.
Out there the lovely woods and fields.
Come, Love, let us away from here.
