Proud Word You Never Spoke

Proud word you never spoke, but you will speak
  Four not exempt from pride some future day.
Resting on one white hand a warm wet cheek,
  Over my open volume you will say,
  ‘This man loved me’—then rise and trip away.

This work was published before January 1, 1925, and is in the public domain worldwide because the author died at least 100 years ago.
