A Love Long Lost

By James Rice

A time ago I found a place

Where love would always show its face

The sweetest tune

That stayed past June

And always and forever followed grace.

The state I was in

And the place I had been

Were more special than ever told

What a sight was her grin

But at night came the din

So there’s yet for love to unfold.

So children beware

Of the night and the terror

That comes to see true love’s past

For love everlast

The will and the flask

Will be the doom everlasting.

At midnight the bells toll noon

And the voices sing out their tune

What I heard once before

Comes in through the door

My sweet love flowers adore.
