REMEMBER?, by            
First Line: Remember? Once we watched beside my gate
Last Line: No grave will hold me on a night like this!


Remember? Once we watched beside my gate
While a pale moon appeared and disappeared
Between white clouds which floated past, sedate
As phantom ships by ghostly fingers steered.
The time was spring and scent of the wild plum
And fragrant lilac bloom was everywhere --
Ours was young love and so we sat there dumb
With joy of living . . . soft wings beat the air
As a wedge of wild geese drifted down the sky
Migrating from some Eden in the south;
Sudden you turned and kissed my waiting mouth,
I had not known then that it meant goodbye.
But this I know: locked in its black abyss
No grave will hold me on a night like this!
