Your hands, my dear, adorable,
Your lips of tenderness
-- Oh, I've loved you faithfully and well,
Three years, or a bit less.
It wasn't a success.

Thank God, that's done! and I'll take the road,
Quit of my youth and you,
The Roman road to Wendover
By Tring and Lilley Hoo,

A new poem to me. Very evocative of England before WW2 and perhaps reflecting some inner sense of betrayal and disappointment on the part of the author. Top quality.
