Subject(s): Love


Just we alone are in the world tonight,
Here on the peaceful summit of a hill.
Let us not think of else beside our love --
Tomorrow is a day beyond our will.

Enveloped in the radiance of night
And love, I would that we, forgetting, might
Be by the world forgot, ecstatically
To dwell in Arcady by day and night.

And then! . . . Life is so short! The Great Beyond
So wrapped in mystery . . . How can we know?
To tear apart a rose and see its heart
Is life's short span, as moments go.
