Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967).  Picture-Show.  1920.

25. Lovers


YOU were glad to-night: and now you’ve gone away. 
Flushed in the dark, you put your dreams to bed; 
But as you fall asleep I hear you say 
Those tired sweet drowsy words we left unsaid. 
  
Sleep well: for I can follow you, to bless         5
And lull your distant beauty where you roam; 
And with wild songs of hoarded loveliness 
Recall you to these arms that were your home.
