FOR a day and night Love sang to us, played with us, Folded us round from the dark and the light; And our hearts wore fulfilled of the music he made with us, iMndc with our hearts and our lips while he stayed with us, Stayed in mid passage his pinions from flight For a clay and a night. From his foes that kept watch with Is wings had ho hidden us, Covered us close from the eyes that would smite, From the feet that, had tracked and the tongues that had chidden us Sheltering In shad o of the myrtles forbidden us Spirit and flesh growing one with delight. For a day and a night. But his wings will not rest, and his feet will not stay for us: Morning is here in tho joy of its might; With his breath has he sweetened a night and a day for us: Now let him pass, and the myrtles make way for us; Love can but last in us here at his height For a day and a night.
