Repine

 

‘Twas an

overflow

Of heart

 

It’s how

such matters

start

 

Had me

think

Anew

 

Of this

life

and you

 
*
 
An

undertow

of grief

 

That all

Good Things

Are Brief
 

Had me

steal

from you
 

Like a petty

scheming

thief
 
*
 
But what

is done

Is done
 

Repine

may still

Be won?

 

For the

heart will

Overflow

 

And go

Where it

Will go

 
*
 
And the

world will

sullen

bear
 

What it

can’t

repair
 

And so

must we

resign
 

To silent

crave

and pine
