    In darkness
    there were many a night
    that us two together
    sat in the park
    watching the MissIssipi
    Wearing his lights like
    golden spangles
    glaring over blak satin
    A railing along the curving
    pathway
    was low in an unhappiness
    but it let us cross
    down the hillside there
    was a tree that
    dipped with bloom
    us - sheltered
    while your kisses
    and summer flowers
    tangled my hair...
    frail white stars
    stood erect and illuminated
    characterized symbols of
    your name slowly over
    the sky
    ...now far off in the
    fragance of night
    the tree is tremulous
    again with bloom
    ~for you have returned
    but without the joy
    I longed for you to know
