Category: Poems of Love Lost


If I should see your eyes again,
    I know how far their look would go--
Back to a morning in the park
    With sapphire shadows on the snow.

Or back to oak trees in the spring
    When you unloosed my hair and kissed
The head that lay against your knees
    In the leaf shadow's amethyst.

And still another shining place
    We would remember--how the dun
Wild mountain held us on its crest
    One diamond morning white with sun.

But I will turn my eyes from you
    As women turn to put away
The jewels they have worn at night
    And cannot wear in sober day.
