DELILAH, by            
First Line: Oh, but certainly you will adore her
Last Line: And the ashes of cold fires.
Subject(s): Love Affairs


Oh, but certainly you will adore her.
Other, and wiser men have knelt before her,
To burn pale candles,
And kiss her bright sandals.

Oh, but certainly you will become her lover,
Not tenderly, but only to discover
What smouldering secret lies
Behind her mocking eyes.

Oh, but certainly you will grow weary.
There is nothing there to find but the dreary
Monotony of old desires,
And the ashes of cold fires.
