- by Charlotte Mary Mew24
Remember me and smile, as smiling too, I have remembered things that went their way-- The dolls with which I grew too wise to play-- Or over-wise--kissed, as children do, And so dismissed them; yes, even as yoy Have done with this poor piece of painted clay-- Not wantonly, but wisely, shall we say? As one who, haply, tunes his heart anew.
Only I wish her eyes may not be blue, The eyes of a new angel. Ah! she may Miss something that I found,--perhaps the clue To those long silences of yours, which grew Into one word. And should she not be gay, Poor lady! Well, she too must have her day.
My Heart is Lame
- by Charlotte Mary Mew19
My heart is lame with running after yours so fast Such a long way, Shall we walk slowly home, looking at all the things we passed Perhaps to-day?
Home down the quiet evening roads under the quiet skies, Not saying much, You for a moment giving me your eyes When you could bear my touch.
But not to-morrow. This has taken all my breath; Then, though you look the same, There may be something lovelier in Love's face in death As your heart sees it, running back the way we came; My heart is lame.
