Dusk In War Time

Rating: 2.9

A half-hour more and you will lean
To gather me close in the old sweet way--
But oh, to the woman over the sea
Who will come at the close of day?

A half-hour more and I will hear
The key in the latch and the strong quick tread--
But oh, the woman over the sea
Waiting at dusk for one who is dead!

A half-hour more and I will hear The key in the latch and the strong quick tread- But oh, the woman over the sea Waiting at dusk for one who is dead!
