Lizette Woodworth Reese: Love came back at Fall o' Dew

Love came back at Fall o' Dew

Lizette Woodworth Reese

Love came back at fall o' dew, Playing his old part; But I had a word or two That would break his heart.
"He who comes at candlelight, That should come before, Must betake him to the night From a barrèd door."
This the word that made us part In the fall o' dew; This the word that brake his heart — Yet it brake mine, too.
