Sara Teasdale: "Did You Never Know?"

"Did You Never Know?"

Did you never know, long ago, how much you loved me —  That your love would never lessen and never go? You were young then, proud and fresh-hearted,  You were too young to know.
Fate is a wind, and red leaves fly before it  Far apart, far away in the gusty time of year — Seldom we meet now, but when I hear you speaking,  I know your secret, my dear, my dear.
