colloque-sentimental-s.jpg

In the ancient, frozen, solitary park

Two figures passed anon—now mark!;

:

Their eyes are dead, their lips are soft and gray;

One scarce can hear the words they say!

:

In the ancient, frozen, solitary park;

Two ghosts evoke the past—oh, hark!

:

“Does thy heart beat still at my name, and glow?

Seest thou my soul in dreams, dear?”—“No.”

:

“Ah! the fair days of joyance and of gree

When our mouths kissed, ah, kissed!”—“Maybe!”

:

“How blue the sky was, as our hope was clear!”

“Hope has gone down to Hell’s nadir.”

:

So, in the foolish aleys they conferred,

And only midnight overheard.
