When in the Rowan Tree by Charles G. D. Roberts

When in the rowan tree
The coloured light fades slowly,
And the quiet dusk,
All lilied, breathes of you,
Then, Heart’s Content,
I feel your hair enfolding me,
And tender comes the dark,
Bringing me—you.

And when across the sea
The rose-dawn opens slowly,
And the gold breaks, and the blue,
All glad of you,
Then, Heart’s Reward,
Red, red is your mouth for me,
And life to me means love,
And love means—you.
