ROBIN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Come to me, robin! The daylight is dying
Last Line: How can I die?
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Love; Robins

COME to me, Robin! The daylight is dying!
Come to me now!
Come, ere the cypress-tree over me sighing,
Dank with the shadow-tide, circle my brow;
Come, ere oblivion speed to me, flying
Swifter than thou!

Come to me, Robin! The far echoes waken
Cold to my cry!
Oh! with the swallow-wing, love overtaken,
Hence to the Echo-land, homeward, to fly!
Thou art my life, Robin. Oh! love-forsaken,
How can I die?
