Love Poetry.


May

I cannot tell you how it was;
But this I know: it came to pass –
Upon a bright and breezy day
When May was young, ah pleasant May!

Spring blossoms white
As yet the poppies were not born
Between the blades of tender corn;
The last eggs had not hatched as yet,
Nor any bird forgone its mate.

Red Tulips

I cannot tell you what it was;
But this I know: it did but pass.
It passed away with sunny May,
Spring field with creek running through

With all sweet things it passed away,
And left me old, and cold and grey.
