Franklin Pierce Adams
Lines Written On The Sunny Side Of Frankfort Street - Poem by Franklin Pierce Adams
Sporting with Amaryllis in the shade,
(I credit Milton in parenthesis),
Among the speculations that she made
"When"--these her very words--"when you return,
A slave to duty's harsh commanding call,
Will you, I wonder, ever sigh and yearn
Doubt, honest doubt, sat then upon my brow.
(Emotion is a thing I do not plan).
I could not fairly answer then, but now
Yes, Amaryllis, I can tell you this,
Can answer publicly and unafraid:
You haven't any notion how I miss
