SONG, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Love's an aeon, love's a day
Last Line: There'll be years and years for brooding.
Alternate Author Name(s): Maurice, Furnley
Subject(s): Carpe Diem

LOVE'S an aeon, love's a day,
Love and faith are each the stronger,
Kiss me, lady, while you may,
We may not be ours much longer;
Love's a swallow, love's a fancy,
Love's a bit of necromancy.

Love's a winter mantle's wave,
Love's the colour of a bonnet,
Love's a temple, Love's a grave,
Love's a limb with nothing on it.
Kiss me now, while you approve me,
There may not be long to love me.

Filch from me all you can find,
Call it afterwards a blunder;
Love to-day's exceeding kind,
Grasp the moment's fleeting wonder,
Take the flowers and pretty mooding,
There'll be years and years for brooding.
