A TUNE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A foolish rhythm turns in my idle head
Last Line: As a wind-mill turns in the wind on an empty sky.


A foolish rhythm turns in my idle head
As a wind-mill turns in the wind on an empty sky.
Why is it when love, which men call deathless, is dead,
That memory, men call fugitive, will not die?
Is love not dead? yet I hear that turn if I lie
Dreaming awake in the night on my lonely bed,
And an old thought turns with the old tune in my head
As a wind-mill turns in the wind on an empty sky.
