A love in verse

My Dream, My Love

Performed by

And now the gold and mauve and pink

Of sunset fades and darkness falls

And evening crowds and then we think

How brief the day although Time crawls.


Though fifty million minutes make

A life yet days descend to earth

Like leaves – hardly are we awake

Than eyes close on a pennyworth

Of time so sleep may overtake


Yet whether day or whether life

You’re here, my dream, my love, my wife.



All still and dim the house has been

Shadowed against the furious sun

And I have missed my dearest one...

Though I’m under the spell

Of you when young, my life’s best half,

It still may not be well...
