The Arabian Shawl

 "It is cold outside, you will need a coat--
What! this old Arabian shawl!
Bind it about your head and throat,
These steps.
.
.
it is dark.
.
.
my hand.
.
.
you might fall.
" What has happened? What strange, sweet charm Lingers about the Arabian shawl.
.
.
Do not tremble so! There can be no harm In just remembering--that is all.
"I love you so--I will be your wife," Here, in the dark of the Terrace wall, Say it again.
Let that other life Fold us like the Arabian shawl.
"Do you remember?".
.
.
"I quite forget, Some childish foolishness, that is all, To-night is the first time we have met.
.
.
Let me take off my Arabian shawl!"
