Tomorrow Is Gone
After you’re gone,
There shall be starlight still
Shimmering silver o’er our trysting hill;
There shall be music yet,
Flute from leaves and reeds and grasses wet;
There shall be flowers, fragrances releasing.
Impatience of the lover-night appeasing;
There shall these, Beloved-
All Beauty unremoved
Though you be gone….
Not only starlight; other lights shall glisten,
Splintering crisp in a million glints;
Not only scent from the floral censers risen;
Odorous breaths shall be-nay, taunting hints
Of sensuous sweetness wooing deep desire;
Woman For You
You wonder why my feelings
For you, my love, are sung,
And never plainly phrased by
The unaffecting tongue.
It is because my passions
Are restless, rash and strong-
To native sense immodest
Unless expressed in song.
