Gamaliel Bradford

(9 October 1863 - 11 April 1932 / Boston, Massachusetts)

Heinelet I


The huge old earth shook and quivered,
When it heard my passionate cry.
Why, even the little stars shivered
And almost went out in the sky.

But the earth and the stars knew better,
Whispering below and above,
'If the fool will be faithless, let her.'—
So nothing went out but my love.
