Flame and Shadow/Day and Night

 

DAY AND NIGHT

In Warsaw in Poland
Half the world away,
The one I love best of all
Thought of me to-day;


I know, for I went
Winged as a bird,
In the wide flowing wind
His own voice I heard;


His arms were round me
In a ferny place,
I looked in the pool
And there was his face—


But now it is night
And the cold stars say:
"Warsaw in Poland
Is half the world away."
