EIGHT O'CLOCK - John Byrne Leicester Warren Poems


Poems » john byrne leicester warren » eight o clock


Supper comes at five o'clock,
    At six, the evening star,
My lover comes at eight o'clock --
    But eight o'clock is far.

How could I bear my pain all day
    Unless I watched to see
The clock-hands laboring to bring
    Eight o'clock to me.
