|by Betsy Hanes Perry
Whose house this is too well I know.
She's travelled off to college, though.
She'll never know I brooded here
Beneath the eaves of her window.
My wicked Childe would surely jeer
If he should see me standing here
And staring at the vacant spot
Where once I held my only dear.
Her arms were comfort, warmth, and light,
But I had many foes to fight
And so I left her in the night
And so I left her in the night.
