Apologetic Postscript Of A Year Later

Written by: Robert Louis Stevenson | Biography
 | Quotes (139) |
 IF you see this song, my dear,
And last year's toast,
I'm confoundedly in fear
You'll be serious and severe
About the boast.
Blame not that I sought such aid To cure regret.
I was then so lowly laid I used all the Gasconnade That I could get.
Being snubbed is somewhat smart, Believe, my sweet; And I needed all my art To restore my broken heart To its conceit.
Come and smile, dear, and forget I boasted so, I apologise - regret - It was all a jest; - and - yet - I do not know.
