Larghetto

Written by: Mary Elizabeth Coleridge | Biography
 | Quotes (1) |
 Grant me but a day, love, 
But a day, 
Ere I give my heart, 
My heart away, 
Ere I say the word 
I'll ne'er unsay.
Is it earnest with me? Is it play? Did the world in arms Cry to me, "Stay!" Not a moment then Would I delay.
Yet, for very love, I say thee nay.
Ere I give my heart, My heart away, Grant me but a day, love, But a day!
