lyrics

"MIDSUMMER"

You loved me for a little,
You couldn't love me for long;
You gave me wings of gladness
And lent my spirit song.

You loved me for an hour
But only with your eyes;
Your lips I could not capture
By storm or by surprise.

Your mouth that I remember
With a rush of sudden pain
as one remembers starlight
Or roses after rain. . .

Out of a world of laughter
Suddenly I'm sad. . .
Day and night it haunts me,
The kiss I never had.

-Sydney King Russell
