Ashes Of Life

 Love has gone and left me and the days are all alike;
 Eat I must, and sleep I will,—and would that night were
But ah!—to lie awake and hear the slow hours strike!
 Would that it were day again!—with twilight near!

Love has gone and left me and I don't know what to do;
 This or that or what you will is all the same to me;
But all the things that I begin I leave before I'm through,—
 There's little use in anything as far as I can see.
Love has gone and left me,—and the neighbors knock and borrow, And life goes on forever like the gnawing of a mouse,— And to-morrow and to-morrow and to-morrow and to-morrow There's this little street and this little house.
