Heroic Love

by
 WHEN our glowing dreams were dead,
Ruined our heroic piles,
Something in your dark eyes said:
“Think no more of love or smiles.
” Something in me still would say, “Though our dreamland palace goes, I have seen how in decay Still the wild rose clings and blows.
” But your dark eyes willed it thus: “Build our lofty dream again: Let our palace rise o’er us: Love can never be till then.
