Song
 
Leonora Speyer
 
 
IF I could sing the song of the dawn,
The carolling word of leaf or bird,
And the sun-waked fern uncurling there
I would go lonely and would not care!
 
If I could sing the song of the dusk,        5
The stars and moon of glistening June
Lit at the foot and the head of me,
The Spinner might break the thread of me!
 
If I could sing but the song of love,
Fill my throat with each sounding note,        10
Others might kiss and clasp and cling,
Mine be the lips that would sing—would sing!
