Last Line: That the heart went mad about.
Subject(s): Love; Memory

PRITHEE, strive not to remember
Ancient love burnt out and dead;
Blow not on the blackened ember,—
Ash will ne'er again give red.

Lift the latch—another lover
Waits upon thy kiss without:
All the old things have gone over
That the heart went mad about.
