Let Farewell Cease to Be

Stay the hour till when you can,

and let farewell pause, and cease to be.

scrawny words, half an epilogue:

choke them early in the seed;

and let farewell pause, and cease to be.

Hoard the tear and wistful sigh,

for a nobler day and a better why –

when the close is too bittersweet

Let farewell cease to be.

While night unnoticed stalks its prey,

a dirge in quiet will pass away;

another lie to cloak the lies

which Hope must never see.

Will farewell, then, cease to be?
