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!
